Welcome to Anavets Assiniboia Unit #283 Winnipeg
Canadas oldest Veterans Organization
Established in 1840


Thank you everyone for all your kind thoughts, prayers, cards and well wishes during my illness. It is so good to be back and what a wonderful welcome back I received from so many of you.

A very Big Thank You to my committee: Donna Hartie, Karen Ritchie, Valerie Melville, Ev Safnuk, Edie Daniels and Faye Davidson. I left them to handle the Spring Fling and Western Days. They managed very well and I thank them from the bottom of my heart. The Spring Fling was a small group but I understand the evening was a success and everyone enjoyed the night plus we made a small profit.

Plans changed for Western Days. We thought we would try and change things up by holding it on the Saturday night, right after the meat draw. Thanks to Reggie, Donna’s son, for BBQing all the steaks and extra helpers were Linda O’Brien, George Daniels, Rae Roberts and Len Cook. A Music Man was hired in place of a band and proved cost effective.

Comedy Night was held May 13th at the club with a good turn out. The MFRC got the ticket sales and we got the bar sales. I understand it was a very fun filled evening so we may repeat this event in the Fall.

Canada Day preparations are underway and we have at least 15 volunteers so it should be a great day. There will be a hot dog lunch and many activities for the children and young at heart! Please see the hand out. Activities will be starting at 11:00am. Unit 283 is considering this as an OPEN HOUSE and we will have membership forms and information sheets available. The sheet will highlight all the activities and sports that we provide here at 283. There will be a BBQ dinner served after the meat draw. The band will be the Marvels and the Club will close at 11:00pm.
