Masset Legion elections

  • Dec. 4, 2006 10:00 a.m.

Submitted article–Branch 244 held their elections at a well-attended annual general meeting.
Comrades Mary Frick and Ted Corry retained their positions as president and vice-president respectively. Charlie McCahon replaces Shirley Kricheldorf as Secretary/Treasurer and the remaining executive positions were filled by: Comrades Evan McLean, Colleen McDames, Bev Kennedy, Ron Dallyn, Brian Gray, and Bill Rootham. Thank you to all of them for letting their names stand. The branch can’t run without the support of the members.
About a hundred Co-op staff and board attended their social club Christmas party held in the hall. Beautiful centrepieces created by Marcia Jordan and potted poinsettias graced the tables, gifts of Purdy’s chocolates and coffee mugs were given out by organizer Mary Frick, and Santa came to hand out the Secret Santa gifts exchanged for all those who took part in that tradition. The catered prime rib and Yorkshire pudding meal was absolutely delicious.
As I looked around at the tables I was struck by how many of the attendees had been involved with Canadian Forces Station Masset at one time either as military or civilian personnel or Canex staff. A few of us at my table started listing the people that are still in town who also worked at the base. We came up with a list of almost 80 people. As the base has been closed for over 10 years a reunion dinner is being planned for sometime in the spring. Fran Redick has agreed to help with contacting people and we will start contacting people after Christmas and advertising the event. Stay tuned for more information on that.
There is no general meeting held in December, the next one will be January 24th. If you have any ideas for events, or other suggestions for the branch please contact one of the new executive or stop in the branch.
Just a reminder that Monday night football is taking place with Ron’s delicious chicken wings and Maryann’s delectable pizza, and pool is Saturday night.
There is also a mixed pool event on Tuesday nights. “Let’s get outta the house”.
