The local Legion Ladies’ Auxiliary met Sept. 9, with 32 members in attendance.
We hope everyone had a good summer.
The Legion ladies now will be busy preparing for the annual Remembrance Day Tea—and will need every member’s assistance to make this worthy event the huge success it is.
Tickets for the tea’s 50/50 draw are available from members and at various locations around town for $2 each, with a cash price of half the tickets sold to a maximum potential of $1,700.
The charter was draped in memory of Audrey Thomson.
Scholarships were awarded to the following four Fort Frances High School graduates: Sydney Stanley, Claire Sandelovich, Taylor Degagne, and Ashtyn Dokuchie.
The auxiliary and Legion Br. #29 also supported six children participating in the Legion Sports Camps at the Peace Gardens this past summer.
Donations were presented to the Fort Frances 908 Rainy Lake Air Cadets and the Alzheimer’s Society.
The flowers in front of the Legion looked awesome this summer thanks to Josie Miller and Rondi Roth.
Something new is happening in the month of October—the Legion will be having twice-monthly Sunday pancake breakfasts.
The first one will be held Sunday, Oct. 4, with the second one set for Sunday, Oct. 18 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
The cost will be $7 for adults and $3 for children five and under.
So mark these dates on your calendar. Everyone is welcome!
The auxiliary’s next monthly supper will be held this Friday (Sept. 25), with the menu featuring roast beef and all the trimmings, as well as home-baked pies.
The cost is $15/plate, with doors opening at 4:30 p.m.
Take-outs also available (for pick-up only) by calling 274-3772.
50/50 Joker Poker also will be played again.
Our next meeting will be held Wednesday, Oct. 14 at 7 p.m. A potluck supper will go first at 6 p.m.
All members are welcome to come out and enjoy the evening.
The attendance draw was won by Leslie Bell while the birthday draw winners were Christina McDougall (August) and Alfreda Easton (September).
