PRESIDENT’S REPORT                            Len Cook

I hope that all Members had an excellent Christmas and I wish the Unit and all Members, the best for 2019.

December was a very busy month. Linda and I were pleased to be able to attend the Unit Pipe Band Christmas party on December 8th and the Over 55& Retired Christmas party on December 11th. Both of these were a lot of fun and I thank you for the invitations.

Our annual Deer lodge visit was on December 15th and went very well. We had a very good turnout for the Choir as well as the visitors to Veterans Wards. I was accompanied by Santa, Mrs. Claus and a few of the Elves. The Veterans seemed happy to see us and the Choir was very well received by the residents. We en-joyed a light meal back at the Unit afterward where the Choir performed for the Members. I thank all those who took the time to accompany us for a truly worthy cause.

At our General Meeting on December 20th, we heard the report from the nominating committee regarding the upcoming elections in January. It is disappointing to find that the position of President and those standing for the Executive will be elected by acclamation. There will be elections for 1st & 2nd Vice Presidents. We will be 2 Members short on the Executive Council and this will mean extra work for the whole Executive. We will hold a by-election at the March General Meeting to see if we can fill the Executive.

The next General Meeting will be January 17th at 7:00 pm and the Unit Election Meeting will be January 24th at 7:00 pm. Remember that to be able to vote at the Elections you will need your 2019 Membership card so I urge you to make sure you get yours.
