PRESIDENT’S REPORT                            Len Cook

Plans are in the final stages for our November 11th Service. This is a big day for Unit 283 as we Remember, Honour and thank all of our Veterans. We hope for another large turn-out this year.

Plans are also underway for our annual visit to Deer Lodge where we visit the Veterans Wards along with San-ta while our Choir entertains the other residents. This is always a good day and the residents and Veterans real-ly seem to enjoy the attention. Please check the usual notice boards for more info.

Our Colour Party was asked to attend the “Our Manitoba Heroes Gala” on Oct. 27th. I thank Rae Roberts and the Colour Party of Bill Sadler, John Blair, Ron Reader and Donna Hartie for doing a great job representing Unit 283 at this function.

Our Halloween Dance on Friday Oct. 26th was well attended with a few Members in costume. I think everyone had a good time.

We had to have some repairs done to the roof-top heating unit. This has made our Bingo players and staff much happier. I am hoping that repairs to the parking lot will be completed soon.

I attended the Provincial Command Quarterly Board Meeting in Brandon on Oct. 21st. one of the big things was an increase of $1.00 per Member in per capita tax. This, along with the $1.00 increase added by Dominion Command means that we will now pay $33.00 in per capita taxes to the Commands for every Member. Memberships are now available for 2019 and the cost will remain at $40.00 for up-coming year. Please renew early.

Effective immediately our Tuesday night “Chase the Queen” is cancelled until further notice. The CVMS meat and bake draws will continue for the time being.

The next General Meeting is November 15th and the Nominating Committee will be selected then.
