     Saturday, August 17th is the 150 Club Dinner open to all members of the ‘club’.  Guests are welcome for $10 per person and dinner will be served at 6:30 pm in the upstairs banquet hall.  Please be sure to call the branch at 905-774-5942 or drop in to sign up and reserve a seat.  The cook likes to know how many to prepare for and we can’t have anyone going home hungry!

       Everything is about food these days it seems.  Is it my age, survival instincts kicking in, fattening up for a harsh winter?  Our Perch dinner was another success and we have the members’ picnic coming up on Sunday, August 25th always fun with lots of good food – hamburgers, local corn (to die for) with games for the kids, young or old and the usual congenial conversation.  Why not bring along a fishing pole? It’s at the Edie Campground on the river.  Come by boat if you like, or coming from town, cross the bridge and continue on Regional Rd. 3 and turn right onto Reg. Rd. 20 past the Byng Conservation Area to Aikens Road, turn right and continue straight on through (ignoring the left hand turn at River Rd.) and carry on around the bend, past the Anger cemetery and just past Dick’s greenhouses on the right, you will come to Edies on the left.  You can’t miss it!

        The next BIG thing on the agenda is the Veterans’ Golf Tournament.  Some holes are still open and it is only $65 per person for a great day of 18 hole Scramble with a cook-your-own steak dinner afterwards at the Branch, followed by prizes and a multitude of ‘coulda-shoulda’ stories.   I guarantee you will have fun and a good chance of winning.  In the meantime, keep your head down and follow through!
