Well, we’ve enjoyed the summer and our winter schedules are already brimming with all sorts of interesting things to do here at Unit #283. Have you noticed? The Halloween spirits have come and gone.

Nov. 11th, Remembrance Day
will take place in the Stillwell Hall with everyone seated by 10:30 A.M. After the service, a light lunch will be served in the Lounge. Please see Donna Hartie with questions.

Nov. 24th will bring many of us together to cheer for our favorite football teams. The Grey Cup Party which begins at 3:00 P.M. will end at 11:00 P.M. A Chili cook - Off will be in progress during the first half. Then, Chili Connoisseurs will rate each Entry before we dig in. A delicious Chili Meal is included in the ticket price of $15.00. Tickets are available at the bar now. Chili Cook-off questions? See Donna…

Sometime around Nov. 25th, Christmas Decorations will appear around the club to get us into the spirit of the Season ahead. Parties and get-togethers will be popping up here and there, so keep an eye on our Bulletin Board. And above all, remember to take a breath once in a while. It will get busier yet!

Nov. 30th - The Elvis Gospel and D.J. Variety Show
takes place in Stillwell Hall. Doors - at 6:30 P. M. Starts at 7:00 P.M. Tickets are $25.00 each and available at the bar. Info is posted on Bulletin Board.

Dec. 8th,
Donna with her own set of Elves and helpers from Over 55 + will put on the Unit’s Annual Children’s Christmas Party. Sandra Seals and some of our crew will be putting smiles on the faces of the young-sters while they wait for a visit from Santa and Mrs. Clause. Crafts and face painting, games and Karaoke will make it a fun time for all involved. A light lunch will be served. Soon a poster will be placed on the Bulletin Board with a signup sheet attached. So watch for it, if you are interested,

Dec. 14th, the Carolers will make their annual visit to the folks at Deer Lodge,
as will Santa and Mrs. Clause. The Elves will also come along to make things merry. A notice will be placed on the Bulletin Board with a signup sheet for those who want to join us.

Dec. 31st, the Unit’s New Year’s Eve Party
plans are well underway. The tickets will be made available to Members only from early Nov. to Nov. 30th. From Dec. 1st until all are sold, the general public will be offered a chance to acquire their tickets. This means, those of you who want to be with a particular group of friends: will need to get the names and monies from each of them and contact me, (Bernice) to have your own table.

Those who purchase single or pairs of tickets will be seated with others who have done the same. I know we are a friendly group of people, so this should not cause any problems… but I want you to know, that several members and non-members are already asking for tables. The tickets cost $55.00 per person; a full table of 8 requires a full one-time payment of $440. 00. There will be no refunds. To be fair to everyone else who will be expecting not to be squished, no extra chairs are to be added to tables. The Dec. Newsletter will have more details but I wanted to give you first dibs.

The Band nights are getting busier. The non-member $5.00 entry fee still has a few kinks that need to be straightened out, but it is working. Trying to please many is a huge undertaking. I’ll get there…

On Band nights, there are still several non-members entering early to avoid paying the entry fee. Members, who have paid their dues, are questioning the non-compliance to the rules. I plan to make it right with your help. Thank you for your cooperation.

A huge Thank You to all of our Volunteers throughout our club!
