The Legion Ladies Auxiliary to Br. #29 met on Oct. 10, with 38 members in attendance.
A delicious potluck supper was enjoyed by all at 6 p.m., followed by our regular monthly meeting.
The charter was draped in memory of Cheri Stanley.
The October birthday winner was Barb Ogden, with cards to Clara Stainke and Maureen Ricard.
The 50/50 draw winner was Wilna Meyers while Linda Larocque won the attendance draw.
Our next monthly supper will take place this Friday (Oct. 26) at 5:30 p.m. upstairs at the Legion.
It will feature Ukrainian dishes (i.e., perogies, cabbage rolls, chicken, veggies, buns, salad, and homemade pies/desserts), with the cost being $18/plate.
With renovations to our kitchen taking place, we are anticipating they will be completed in time for this special supper.
