PRESIDENT’S REPORT                                  Len Cook
I hope that all Members had a enjoyable and safe Christmas and wish one and all a happy and prosperous New Year. all the best in 2018.

I again thank President Marg Rixon and the Executive of the Over 55&Retired club for the kind invitation for Linda and I to attend their annual Christmas Party on December 12th. We had a very enjoyable afternoon of dancinf and an excellent dinner. I also thank Barbie Sands and the Pipe Band for their invitation to attend their Christmas Party on December 16th at Assiboine Downs,Another excellent evening.

At our December General Meeting we heard the report from the Nominating Committee. I was very disappointed to hear that only three Members have let their name stand for Election to the Executive. This will have us short again. In order to fill the positions I will again be asking for nominations at the January General Meeting on January 18th,2018. It is hoped that Members who were  not eligible at the December Meeting may now be eligible and will stand. It is important that the Unit have a full slate on the Executive Council  in order to accomplish everything that needs to be done. Please consider helping your Unit.

Please remember that the Unit Elections will be held on Thursday January 25th,2018. The Meeting starts at 7:00 pm. Also remeber that the Unit By-Laws now state that you must have a 2018 Membership to vote at the Elections and you MUST have your Membership Card with you.
