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

SERVICE OFFICER                                              Donna Hartie

I am still getting my feet wet at this time. I have made many calls to Veteran Affairs; left message after mes-sage and to date no response.

 I had a short visit with Fran O’Neil at Grace Hospital and she was doing well; she is now at Riverview for therapy. I contacted, by phone, Rodney Blue, who is at home and doing well but still doing a lot of testing; Jim Cox is at home; George Bonnefoy had a fall and is home recovering.

Mr. Ronald Grant Brothers passed away February 3, 2018. He was born August 2, 1935 and joined the RCAF when he was 17 years of age. He served 39 years and retired in 1991. At Mr. Brothers request there was no service held.

 I rely on Membership to help me to obtain phone numbers and addresses and if your Membership information is not up to date, I can not visit or phone nor contact family members, if necessary. Rae and I have agreed that he will continue to do the Funerals/Celebration of Life. He will assist me while meeting with families. Remember your information is valuable when it comes to your fellow comrades. So please let me let me know if you hear of someone who is ill and at home or in the hospital.

 I will be taking a course on the RCAF base called Fitness and Mental Health. Any information I receive from the base will be posted for individuals who qualify to take a course. I plan on taking St. John’s Ambulance course down the road. I believe it will be a great asset to the Unit and our comrades.
