     Greetings to all. 

     Due to COVID19 restrictions, executive elections will not be held in 2020; the current executive has been invited to remain in place.

     Our annual Poppy drive has been completed, boxes collected and monies sorted and rolled. Thank you to all who have participated. It is trying times for all of us. If anyone missed the Poppy campaign and would still like to make a donation, mail-in donations would be gratefully accepted. Our mailing address is P. O. Box 670, Stonewall, MB  R0C 2Z0.

     On the subject of mail-in:  Terry is in our office most days and has been processing lots of membership renewals. Unfortunately I did not get this information out soon enough for most of us to take advantage of the Early Bird pricing which ends on November 30:  $40.00 per year, or $35.00 per year if the Member is over 70 years of age. The regular pricing is in effect from December 1 onwards:  $45.00 or $40.00 for those over 70. You can renew online, mail the Branch a cheque, or call the Branch at 467-2261 and make arrangements to come by and pay in person.

     For our Remembrance Day Celebration, we painted rocks and Canadian flags at the veterans’ section of the Stonewall Cemetery, and then laid 5 wreaths at the Cenotaph on the Wednesday.

September Newsletter 2020

 


Saturday, September 26:  there will be a Roast Beef Dinner from 5-6:30 p.m. The cost is $10.00 per ticket by advance ticket only (available at the Club Room bar).

 

Our last BBQ of the season will be on Friday, September 25.  Be there or be square! Thanks very much to all who worked on the barbecues this season. Your efforts are appreciated. 


FROM THE SEPTEMBER MINUTES

Chairman of the Poppy Committee Cde Rev. L. Oracheski reported that Poppies will be distributed starting October 30 and continuing until November 10. On October 30 volunteers will be needed to get the poppies ready; distribution volunteers will also be needed to deliver poppies to their venues.

In addition, there is a need for volunteers to judge the Remembrance Day Essay, Poem, and Posters Contests from the 3 schools in our area. There is information on what the judges should be looking for.

President Cde. Tim Williams reported that Friday night Meat Draw and BBQ are going well. Chase The Queen on Wednesday is getting approximately 20-30 people out. He has spoken with Cde. A. Ammeter to see if the seniors were interested in starting up their senior program again. He called about the ATM and is waiting for a call back; will check into darts, pool, and crib with authorities to see if we can get them up and going. Thank you to the volunteers for the Chicken Dinner on the last Saturday of the month. Thanks to Bob, Kerri, Brenda O., Brenda S., Alice, Shaylene, Ken, and Terry.

The last Saturday of the month dinner has been going well so we will continue with it again in September.

April Newsletter 2020



APRIL NEWSLETTER 2020  

Royal Canadian Legion Br. #52   Contact our Branch at 204-467-2261 or rcl52@shaw.ca

   The information I received on March 27, 2020 was:  

 Sorry we are closed as of last Thursday by provincial command. 
We will let you know when we reopen.

   At this time, all of our projected activities have been cancelled or postponed. When we have new information, we will post it in a Newsletter here, and on our website.  
   Happy Easter!

Please be advised that the VE Day ceremony and reception planned for May 7th at the Manitoba Legislature and the Candlelight Service planned for May 8th at Brookside Cemetery have been cancelled.
 

  Stay safe everyone. Stay home if you possibly can. If you absolutely must go out, maintain social distancing of at least 2 meters (6 feet) between you and any other person. On TV on April 07, Dr. Tam recommended that if you MUST go out and you MIGHT have been exposed to COVID19, please wear a mask – even a homemade one or a bandana. This will NOT protect you (according to the doctor) but it MIGHT help protect others that you inadvertently come into contact with. Continue to practice social distancing. Continue to stay home as much as possible. 

  Meanwhile, keep your stick on the ice; we’re all pullin’ for ya. Remember, we’re all in this together!
