September Newsletter 2019



  September is here. The kids are going back to school. Extra-curricular activities, including Cadets, are starting up again. Legion Week is fast approaching – September 15-21. It is a busy time! 

  A major Legion Week event here at Branch #52 is the Road 2 Recovery fundraiser BBQ on Sept. 21. Ruck to Remember is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting Veterans. Every year for the past 5 years they have organized a multi-day ruck march in Ontario, covering 2 km for every Veteran that died in the previous year. The event is leveraged to raise funds for the Royal Canadian Legion’s “Operation:  Leave the Streets Behind” and has succeeded in raising both awareness and funds to the tune of over $100K for that charity.
  Team Ruck 2 Remember Presents “Road 2 Recovery 2019 – 1st Annual Keystone Edition”. This is a 150km ruck march to keep veterans off the streets. To register or donate:  https://www.gofundme.com/f/ruck-2-remember-manitoba OR admin@ruck2remember.com . 

  The Ruck to Remember Manitoba --  Road 2 Recovery 2019 1st Annual Keystone Edition -- proposed route for September 19-22, 2019, is:
            Day 1 – Lac du Bonnet to Beausejour (46.9 km) – arriving 5:00 on Thurs., Sept. 19
            Day 2 – Beausejour to Selkirk (35.1 km) arriving 5:00 on Friday, Sept. 20
            Day 3 – Selkirk to Stonewall (35.6 km) arriving 5:00 on Saturday, Sept. 21
            Day 4 – Stonewall to Winnipeg (35.9 km) arriving 5:00 on Sunday, Sept. 22.


  Here at Branch #52 in Stonewall, we are having a fundraising BBQ in support of Road 2 Recovery, starting at 5pm and running to 7 or 7:30pm; we will have our local Air Cadet Squadron (301 Alan McLeod) helping us out for the BBQ as well.  
 
  Members night will follow the BBQ, starting at 8pm.

  As usual, the Branch will hold Meat Draw every Friday evening, and also on the last Saturday of each month. Come on out, enjoy the camaraderie, and take chance on winning some meat! 

  The Club Room will be closed on September 02 for Labour Day, and on Oct. 14 for Thanksgiving Day.

  Crib starts in October; call the Branch at 204-467-2261 for details. 

  Thanks to all who participated in the Friday Night BBQs over the summer, and to the many volunteers who made Quarry Days such a success. We could not have done it without you!
