Welcome to Anavets Assiniboia Unit #283 Winnipeg
Canadas oldest Veterans Organization
Established in 1840

PRESIDENT’S REPORT                                  Len Cook

I hope that all Members and Guests had an enjoyable day at our Canada Day Celebrations. I thank Shirley Lyon and her Commitee for the great job organizing this event. I also thank Church of the Rock and our MLA Steven Fletcher for all their assistance in this project. Well done by all.

Our next event is the Unit Anniversary on July 15th. We will be honoring long time Members with Service Pins and will be recognizing Members for their continuing contributions to Unit 283. Please try to attend this special event.

Provincial Command has decided to host a Golf Tournament to raise monies for Veteran’s Charities. This was orginally planned by the Tri-Service but problems arose that caused this to be changed. This is a scramble format and the cost is $50.00 per golfer. It is a nine hole tournament to be played at Assinboine Golf Course July 9th. All proceeds this year will go to the Deer Lodge Hospital Veterans Wing. Please consider playing in this special event. Sign-up sheets are in the Club. There are also sign-up sheets in the Club for the Over 55 vs Unit 283 Golf Challenge. This on July 22nd and is always a lot of fun. Please think about joining us that day.

In August we will be going to Grand Forks for the Can/Am golf there. Look for sign-up sheets later in July for this event.

Bill Sadler, Barb Sadler, Gertie Barron and I golfed in the inaugural “Our Manitoba Heroes” Charity Golf tournment on June 29th. This was a great event and everyone who took part enjoyed the day. It is hoped that this will be a huge source of revenue for the Hereos Gala to be held each year. This year's Gala will be held on October 28th at the  Regent  Street Event Center. This was a great Evening last year and I expect the same this year. A special thank you to Rae Roberts for coming to the Golf Course on the 29th and representing Unit 283 at the 12th hole. He was there all day handing out info about our Unit and ANAVETS and did a very good job. Thanks Rae.

I hope that everyone has an enjoyable summer and hope we will see a lot of you at the various functions planned. Please check the normal places for further information on any up-coming event. See you at the Unit.
