Hello again everyone! Autumn was here and the colours were just so beautiful. I hope you all have had a chance to enjoy some of the warm weather.

On my way home one day last week, I noticed a few youngsters tossing leaves at one another. An adult nearby just kept on raking. Bright yellow, gold and red leaves were scattered as the children dove onto yet another huge pile of leaves and it made me want to join them. Of course I didn’t but would have liked to. The other thing I noticed was that even though they were outside, they all had facemasks on! Young people seem to have caught onto this mask thing real well.

At this junction of the pandemic everyone entering our club must wear facemasks and keep them on until seated at a table.

Members, this may seem like a bother to some, but think of it as something that you can do for your friends here at the club. Show them you care about their health as well as your own, by wearing your masks as re-quired and keeping to the Social Distancing Rules.

Being law-biding citizens we know these mandatory rules need to be implemented as quickly and effortlessly as possible. So to that end, the Executives will be keeping a closer watch because none of us want our friendly club to be shut down; nor do we want anyone getting ill.

The next couple of months are going to be a learning curve for all of us.

We had Bands entertaining on two Friday nights in September. And by the time this newsletter reaches you, we will have had more entertainment in October. The music was enjoyed by all who stayed to listen. It’s been slow going, since attendance is down because of Covid -19 but as time goes on, more members will stay to listen to the music, and enjoy the company of comrades.

I’d like to thank David Barham for helping me put up a few Halloween Decorations. I thought this might make our club feel more like home again.

The Friday, October 30th band had to be cancelled, due to a new two week no live entertainment health rule. We can wear Halloween colours or costumes if we wish. I just may have something planned to keep you hang-ing around after the meat draw. No, not dancing… sorry!

If we are allowed to have live entertainment in November, I am planning to have the following bands; Still Friends on Nov. 13th followed by Destiny on Nov. 27th. I hope more of you will make the time to stay after the Friday Night meat draws and join us while the bands play for us from 8:00 to 10:00 P.M. Without your support, we cannot afford bands.

I’ve booked The Rockets for December 4th and Still Friends for December 18th. All bands know that these dates can be changed as the Health Rules change at any time. Let’s hope for the best.

We will most likely not have a New Year’s Eve Party but the LEVY is a possibility. Please check our Novem-ber newsletter for answers to your questions regarding other events and Christmas decorating etc.…Of course, everything we do hinges on Health Rule Changes.
