OVER 55 & RETIRED                                                        Roger Briand

Things are a little less hectic for our 55 club with summer on the way, but we still have events to report on.

On June 7th we held a fundraiser BBQ selling smokies and hamburgers. The event was very successful, and I thank all our helpers and those who supported us.

We will be having another BBQ on August 9th at the Over 55 meat draw. Watch for the posters around the club.

Our club hosted a Bingo for the residents of Dear Lodge on Wednesday, June 19th. Volunteers are always needed.

At the time of this writing, some of our members are enjoying a bus trip to Spirit Lake Casino. Good Luck to them.

Les Wahl has arranged a day trip to Sand Hills Casino on July 22. Check the bulletin board for details.

Also, information is posted regarding a Folklorama bus trip on August 7th evening. See the Over 55 board for all the information including the venues we will be visiting. Thank you to Les Wahl for all his efforts in or-ganizing this event.

Our Wednesday golf is going well with over 20 members playing each Wednesday morning.

The Over 55 VS 283 Annual Golf Tournament is scheduled for July 21st at the Base Golf Course. We need more participants especially from the 283 side. We would hate to see this long running competition come to an end because of lack of interest. We always have a fun afternoon followed by good food and friendship. Details and sign-up sheets are posted on both bulletin boards.

On behalf of the executive of Over 55, I wish everyone a safe & healthy summer.
