Rutledges to be honoured at Masset legion

  • Mar. 29, 2005 7:00 a.m.

Submitted by Shirley Kricheldorf-Thanks to everyone who helped out with and supported our successful loonie/toonie auction. There are several upcoming events that members will want to mark in their calendars. The next steak night is this Friday, April 1.
On April 2 a special event is being planned to honour Lew and Mary Rutledge. Lew is retiring from BC Hydro and he and Mary are making plans to move to Terrace shortly after that. The Masset Branch would like to invite members and friends from Queen Charlotte to come out and help us show our appreciation to Mary and Lew for their support and volunteering at both branches over the years. They will be sorely missed. It will be a pot luck cold plate. We will provide chicken, ham and potato salad so are looking for appetizers, finger foods, desserts, etc. Dinner starts at 6 pm.
An honours and awards evening is also in the works for April or May where members will receive their years of service pins. Details will be forthcoming when they have been finalized.
The early bird membership draw has not been forgotten, it will take place at the honours and awards night. If you haven’t paid up your 2005 dues yet please do so soon.
The executive is concentrating on the social aspects of the club this year and want to focus on bringing members in for fun and friendship. Euchre, bridge, pool, backgammon and darts are all activities that can take place there. Regular steak nights will continue throughout the spring, increasing to once a week during the summer months. Many hands make light work – turn off your TV for a night and come out and support your branch during this Year of the Veteran and help make it a successful year.
We haven’t had quorum for the last few general meetings, the next one is Tuesday, April 26, membership support is vital to our future.
