     Our Veterans’ Annual Golf Tournament is just around the corner – Sunday, September 8th and promises to be another ‘signature’ event of Branch 142.  There just happens to be a few holes open, so come in to the Branch and get signed up.  For only $65/pp, it will be the usual Scramble format at Freedom Oaks, a steak dinner back at the Branch with prizes to follow.  The course is in great shape again this year thanks to all the summer rains not to mention the hard work of Randy and his crew and naturally, will present the usual set of challenges to most of us.

     A great way to build up your strength in readiness for the tournament is to increase your protein intake.   The best way I know to do just that, is by eating lots of fish.  Perch that is.  Our next Perch dinner is coming up on Friday, August 2nd.  The usual ˝ pound of Perch, fries, dinner roll, homemade coleslaw, tea, coffee and dessert for only $15 per person.  Take-out is available at the back on Central Lane.  Make an evening out of it; enjoy dinner then go in to the club room and be entertained by the Karaoke singers.  Feel free to join in.

     You will notice the excavation in progress at our corner with the re-vamping of our Veterans’ Memorial.  One more feather in the cap of Garry Frost and the generous assistance of The Veterans’ Memorial Restoration Fund.  I don’t believe that any President has made the impact to the branch with his accomplishments, improvements and the overall well-being of its members as Garry has.  The Legion is the heartbeat of the community and a living memorial to our veterans.  Come in and be a part of it.
