Congratulations 2014-15 Electorate

The Legion Banquet Hall was bursting at the seams with a full house to participate in the 2014-15 Election of Officers.

     We are proud to announce that Garry Frost will be at the helm for another 2 years and our thanks go out to Garry for his willingness to continue in his commitment, making Branch 142 one of the most successful Legions in Canada.  John Woods stands with him again as 1st Vice-President, whose worthiness in the position of right-hand-man, is unmitigated.  Dave McQuillen, who has worked alongside Garry for many years, inside as well as outside the Legion, was voted in as 2nd Vice-President and his help in that capacity will be immeasurable.  Gerry McCarthy, who was a recent recipient of a 40 year Ontario Volunteer Service Award will, thankfully, continue his work in the 3rd Vice-Presidentís position.

     Our Sargent-at-Arms is none other than Comrade Reg Edie.  The members of the executive are:  Lisa Baatness, Carol Nie, Sandy Cook, Jeff Carver, Dave Roberts and Craig Moss.  What a responsibility these folks have to maintain the excellence of the previous committees; but they are young, energetic and enthusiastic with some new thoughts and ideas to put into action.  We hope that you will come into the Branch to meet them and if you would like to help in any way to ensure their success, you will be most welcome.

     A perfect time to see our volunteers in top form is at our Annual Mudcat Perch Dinner on Friday, June 6th serving from 4:30 to 7:00 pm.  Itís a great way to kick-off the Mudcat Festival and itís only $15/pp.  Take-out is also available at the back on Central Lane.   Donít forget to wear your tie-dyed shirt and bell bottom pants from the 70ís!  The Legion is a great place to watch the parade on Saturday, our doors are always open.  See you there!
