New members who would like to join for September to end of December can do so for one-third of the regular membership – only $15 for the last four months of the year. The legion is open to members and bona fide guests only. Become a member and you can sign in four guests. Ask for an application form at the bar. Next general meeting is Wednesday, September 22.
No steak night this Friday, September 3rd due to the long weekend. Next steak nights are planned for the 10th and the 24th. Come out and support your legion and enjoy a great meal with friends.
Friday, September 17th is the first annual Holdem Card Tournament. Check out the posters around town or check with Paul Powers, Paddy McPeake, Ethel Mayer, or call the branch for more information, 626-3650. Members and guests only.
Calling all artisans! Monday Muse starts September 13, 7-10 pm. This is an evening of creative inspiration. Bring your own arts and crafts out to share with others. Meet up with people who share your interests or can introduce you to something new. If you love woodworking, metal work,
knitting, crocheting, quilt making, beadwork, shell craft, come out and share your passion with others. A guest artist will start the evening with a short presentation or demonstration of their art. Home artists will offer do-it-yourself kits for hands on learning. Bring your scrap booking materials and get a page or two done, bring your knitting needles and work on your current project, share your photographs of your past accomplishments. We are setting up a lending library of resource materials so if you have any crafts books,
patterns, how-to pamphlets, etc. bring them with you to donate or loan out.
Time to be thinking about Christmas crafts. Come out and get inspired to get started. Members and guests only. Become a member and you can sign in four of your friends and neighbours.
We’re looking for organizers for special events, pool league or tournaments, euchre or cards night, crib and backgammon evenings. Turn that TV off for the night and come out for an evening of fun and fellowship. See you at the legion!
