PRESIDENT’S REPORT                            Len Cook

This is the time of year when we start looking forward to spring and the summer that follows. With the weath-the way it has been lately we may have to wait a little longer.

On February 16th Members of the Executive and I attended the MFRC Yellow Ribbon Gala. It was an excellent evening with speeches, entertainment and a great meal. This is our way of supporting the MFRC for the work they do for Military Families.

I have to thank Linda O’Brien for all of her hard work and long hours assisting the Membership Committee to bring their records up to date. This work will allow us to resume the Membership Draw as of March 1st. Thanks very much Linda. I also thank the Members for their patience while we got the problem resolved.

Following our Elections in January we find ourselves two Executive Members short. For this reason, we will have a by-election at our March General Meeting. The March Meeting is scheduled for March 21st at 7:00 pm. Please plan to attend this meeting and consider letting your name stand. The Unit needs your help.

As a special event fundraiser this year we are planning a Lobster Dinner & Dance. We have not finalized this yet so watch the usual areas for more information.

In order to attract Members to come to the Unit, we are bringing in some different beers and trying different specials. Please come in and see what we are offering.

See you in the Unit. Don’t forget St. Patrick’s Day.
