SERVICE OFFICER/MORAL OFFICER                    Donna Hartie

We have had a busy summer and I am so glad to see so many back for dances meat draw, card games and other Activities that we, as a Unit, provide for our members.

The Unit, your comrades,have lost five (5) members this summer:
Bruce Campbell- July 20,2019: Delores Sadler-July 10, 2019: Morley Baron-July 15,2019: Ronald Pruden- July 8,2019: Harry Grosvenor-August 1, 2019.

Gord Watt and I participated in a Memorial Service for the PEACE KEEPERS. In 1974 August 9, NINE (9) Peace Keepers were shot down by a missile in Syria. There is a small group left and it was
an honour to attend. The small Service was held at the Home Street Memorial. August 9 is Peace Keeper Day. The group promised to be more informative for Unit next year. Please watch bulletin board for information next year.

We will be closed on Monday, September 2, 2019.

Excitement is in the air, Youth Sports is starting to pick up and I am so please to see our members, who want to be involved and teach our YOUTH. Your experience is great needed. You are the true meaning
of a COMRADE and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for offering your expertise. Rae Roberts has been a great advocate for this activity and has been approaching many players to request their help
and some have signed up. The Youth who come here will be impressed with our Unit and our members and I am sure they will join when they are of age. I personally know two of my grandchildren will join
because they have fun here and like to volunteer at every chance they get. With your HELP this will be a success. The Youth is our future and without them, we will not grow. Small piece of information, we
are the first Unit in Manitoba, in 30 years to offer organized sports to Youth and we are very excited about the event. Another note, anyone wanting to help financially can donate money in the name of the
Youth Sports League, sponsorship, darts, cues and shuffleboard rocks, also T-shirts, Youth Membership cards, all needed to be purchased. A Banquet with Trophies/plaques will be at end of year. This is
completely free for Youth 13-17 years of ages. The Unit is NOT funding this program, we are working from donations and sponsorship. Please come see myself or Rae Roberts for more information if you
want to donate a large amount of money, sponsor or provide game equipment.
