JULY 2019 Newsletter
Branch No. 52 in Stonewall, MB is getting into the summer swing of things!
On June 2 we had our annual Decoration Day Parade, marching from the Branch to the Cenotaph. Thank you to all who participated in any way.
Our summer Barbecues are being held on Friday nights, in the Club Room from 5:30 until 7 or so. Friday Meat Draws are always popular, from 6:30 until about 8. To volunteer for either of these activities, call the Branch at 204 467 2261. There is also a Meat Draw on the last Saturday afternoon of each month, at 3 p.m.
The big event of our summer is of course Quarry Days, from August 16 – 18. There will be Beer Gardens in the afternoons on Friday, Saturday and Sunday; pancake breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday; and live entertainment Friday night and Saturday night. For details, call the Club Room. There is still time to get your name on the volunteer list for the weekend, if you are so inclined. Many hand make light work after all!
Our Building Maintenance Manager reports that the concrete steps on the north side have been replaced with nice new ramps. This has little impact on the visiting public, since we enter on the east or south side, but for deliveries of food and beer and other supplies, it is a most welcome improvement. Thanks to all who helped out, and especially to the folks from G & A rentals who lent us the jackhammer. Boy, that was appreciated!
We at the Legion want to welcome everyone to join us for fellowship. Each person who walks through our doors is important, and it is important that we volunteers and staff make them feel important. Here are a few tips:
Key Principles of Hospitality -- S.E.R.V.I.C.E.
The word SERVICE represents the following 7 key guiding principles in creating a more welcoming and hospitable Legion environment.
S – Smile
E – Enquire; ask “how are you”, “what can I do for you today?”, etc.
R – Remember; make an effort to recall visitors’ names and greet them when they return
V -- Very nice to see you
I – Introduce yourself
C – Connect; find some common ground for casual conversation
E -- Entice to join/return; your welcoming attitude is a great incentive for visitors to return!
