Legion ladies eager for spring

The local Legion Ladies’ Auxiliary held its regular monthly meeting last Wednesday (Feb. 12), with 29 members in attendance.
The charter was draped in memory of Kay Buffington, who was a long-time member and a proud veteran.

Donna McKelvie was initiated and welcomed as a member.
Meanwhile, a $2,000 donation was made to La Verendrye Hospital to purchase a therapeutic mattress.
A donation also was made to the Legion Athletic sports camp to continue offering bursaries to the youth of Northwestern Ontario to attend.
In other news, ideas are welcome for entertainment for the annual Veterans’ Supper coming up on May 3.
This event always is looked forward to by our veterans.
As well, plans are underway to hold a spring dessert tea on May 10.
Several members will be attending the district meeting being held in Atikokan on March 28-30.
Our monthly supper is set for next Friday (Feb. 28) at 5:30 p.m. Roast pork is on the menu, along with all the trimmings and home-baked pies.
Admission is $14, with doors opening at 4:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome.
The birthday draw was won by Gwen Westover and attendance prize by Larisa Curr.
Our next meeting is set for Wednesday, March 12 at 7 p.m. upstairs at the Legion.
Any ladies interested in joining can contact Linda Larocque at 274-1567.
