October has been a somewhat quiet month for our club.

Our Friday meat draw was cancelled on Oct 11th due to winter’s early arrival. It was a good decision. I don’t think too many members would have ventured out that night. I know I wasn’t going anywhere near the Perim-eter.

We also had to cancel our Friday morning bowling, but we were back in full swing the following Friday.

Sharon Bugden, our Membership Chairperson is busy planning the Newcomers’ Luncheon to be held on Nov 26th in the John Thompson Room.
Les Wahl has planned an overnight bus trip to South Beach Casino on November 18th-19th. Because of the tre-mendous response, Les has managed to have a second bus available to accommodate everyone. The sign-up sheet is on the Over 55 bulletin board and the deadline for signing up is Nov 5th.

Les is also involved in putting together a poetry contest for our Remembrance Day ceremonies. Each year becomes more difficult, as schools unfortunately no longer chose to participate in the contest. We thank Les for his efforts.

Our Thursday afternoon bingo continues to thrive and increase in attendance. Under the direction of Chairper-son Lisette Madsen and her Co-Chair Paul Fontaine, the volunteers provide an excellent source of afternoon entertainment. We are training some new callers to allow some flexibility in their schedules and can also use more card checkers. If anyone is interested in helping, see Lisette or myself.
