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!
