PRESIDENT’S REPORT                                  Len Cook

I heard that the Halloween Dance on Oct. 28th was a success. Congrats to Shirley and her Committee for an-other job well done. I was not able to attend as I was attending the “Our Manitoba Heroes” gala the same evening. Our Colour Party and the Pipe Band did a great job marching in the Heroes and I thank them for their professionalism and conduct. Great work.

Now that October is over, we can concentrate on our November 11th Service. Planning is nearly complete and we are working hard to get everything ready. We are going to be having the carpets cleaned on Sunday, Nov. 5th starting at 12:30 so if anyone is available to help move tables and chairs please stop in, we would appreci-ate the help. Also on Nov. 9th we will be working on the floor in the Banquet Hall. It has needed a good cleaning and waxing for a while now.

Our General Meeting will be held on November 16th at 7:00 pm. We will be selecting a Nominating Commit-tee to Nominate Members for the Executive for the Elections in January. Please think about serving on this important Committee and also think about letting your name stand for Election. Your Unit needs you.

Tickets are available for our Grey Cup party on Nov. 26th. This was a lot of fun last year so think about at-tending with us and cheer for your favorite team.

We are also planning our Deer Lodge visit with Santa and our wonderful choir. Nothing is firm yet but we are planning for Dec. 9th. Please check the usual areas for more info and sign-up sheets.

Memberships will go on sale shortly so watch for that. The 2018 Membership Fee is $37.50 if paid before Jan. 1st. After that the cost will be $40.00.

Tickets will also go on sale soon for New Years Eve. Please plan to attend this function and help ring in the New Year.

As you can see, the remainder of 2017 is going to be extremely busy at Unit 283. Help us celebrate the events and support your Unit. We look forward to seeing you there.
