May Newsletter 2019


  Spring has sprung – I know because the farmers are seeding. The weather is not very spring-like yet but I am sure it will be soon. At least I hope so!
  Here at Branch #52 Stonewall, we are planning for the summer already. First up, the Club Room will be closed on May 20 for the May Long Weekend. I recall when The Twenty-Fourth Of May was when we could quit wearing our winter boots to school and finally try out our new running shoes. And we could leave off our winter stockings and just go with BARE LEGS and socks. The joys of childhood!
  Decoration Day will be Sunday, June 2. There will be a parade from the Hall to the Cenotaph. Call the Club Room for details. 204-467-2261.
  When it really is summer, we will be full speed ahead planning for Quarry Days, which takes place on August 16, 17 and 18. Volunteers are always needed, in many capacities. Come on out and join our fun crowd! There will be Pancake Breakfast on the Saturday and Sunday, Beer Gardens on Saturday and Sunday afternoons and Friday and Saturday evenings, and of course our famous street dance on Saturday night with the music of Rocket88.
  Looking even further ahead, Members’ Night will be September 21; Vets’ Supper will be in November with the Marvels, who will also be playing at our New Year’s Eve Party on December 31.
  Darts has wrapped up for the season, and Crib will be finished on May 9. Thanks very much to the volunteers who make these ongoing events happen. You add to the life of our Legion!
  Meat draws take place every Friday night from 6:30, AND also on the last Saturday of each month at 3 p.m. It’s a great opportunity to socialize with friends, and you might even win something. Somebody is going to win, it might as well be you!

NEWSLETTER March 05, 2019

March 5, 2019
  So far it is not looking real spring-like out there! Temperatures are still low, and snow (and wind) still high. But here at Branch #52, we are getting ready for our Spring Fling!
  We elected not to hold our annual Fall Supper in October, 2018. We discussed various aspects of the event, and decided to try holding it in the spring instead – and so the Spring Fling was born!
  SPRING FLING (Dinner to kick off Spring) will take place in the Hall on Sunday, March 24 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Ham and scalloped potatoes will be served. Advance Tickets are available at the bar, or  by calling Tim at 467-8164 or Teresa at 461-1795. For More details call 204-467-2261.  Prices:   Adult (16 & over) $12.50; Youth (6-15) $7.50; Child (5 & under) $5.
  Thanks to all the marvelous volunteers, our annual bonspiel was a success, with all 20 teams having a good time.
  The Chase the Queen pot has been won! Now we are starting over, building it up again, Wednesday nights at 7:30.
ALL COMMUNICATION SHOULD BE DIRECTED TO THE BRANCH OFFICE, email rcl52@shaw.ca or phone 204-467-2261.
