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

SERVICE OFFICER                                              Donna Hartie

The Memorial Books have been updated to 2018 and they look wonderful. Many thank you’s to Millie Blair, it was a big job as no updates had been done since 2014. Our beautiful Memorial Books were hand made by Keith and Mary Bratley quite a few years ago; they are kept on display in the John Thompson Room. Bill Muir is keeping on top of obituary notices and cards are being sent out by Bernice Kwasnicki.

As with the Entertainment committee I will be keeping track of Social Services volunteer hours for submission to Volunteers of Manitoba.
We lost two members this month: Jerald (Jerry) Palka and Patricia (Patty) Jane Bonas both passed away on February 28. Patty’s service will be held on May 4 2019 at the White Ridge Baptist Church. A lovely Memo-rial Service was held for Jerry on March 15 in our John Thompson Room. Thank you to the family for giving us the opportunity to say goodbye!

2019-2020 Applications for the Veteran and Family Well Being are now being accepted. I’ve posted the infor-mation on the Services section of the vestibule Bulletin Board; it includes a web site address you can use to see if you are eligible to apply.

The Service Officer duties are not just Funeral and Celebration of Life events. I believe it is also to try and improve the moral in the Unit. With that in mind we are working on introducing a monthly YOUTH SPORTS NIGHT starting on October 12 2019 to run every second Saturday until June 13 2020 from 6:30 pm to 10:00 pm. We are calling for a minimum of 10 male and female volunteers: 2 adults per Snooker table, 4 adults for Shuffleboard and 4 adults for Darts. There has been a lot of interest from the Army and Airforce Cadets al-ready and Rae will soon be approaching the Navy Cadets. If you have children aged from 13 to 17 bring them along they are welcome. Children are our future. If you like working with children and you are interested in helping out, please leave your name, phone number and email address with the bar and either myself or Rae Roberts will contact you.

                                  THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO!!
