Legion ladies suppers to resume

Category: 

The first Legion Ladies Auxiliary supper of 2002—featuring roast beef and all the trimmings—will be held Friday, Jan. 25 upstairs at the Royal Canadian Legion here.

Cost is $10 per person, and everyone is welcome to attend.

In other news, five new members were initiated at the regular meeting of Legion Ladies Auxiliary Br. #29 on Jan. 9. They included Heather Gunderson, Jodie Joyce, Robin Kellar, Juanita Noble, and Jean Townsen.

Three members also transferred from other Legion auxiliaries—Col-leen Cote (Dryden), and Tracy Trudel and Millie Lockman (Ig-nace).

Local president Mary DuCharme installed two new officers for 2002—Norma Perlett (treasurer) and Laura McConnell (sick and visiting).

She also gave a 25-year member pin to Bonnie Carlson.

Meanwhile, donations were made to several organizations and charities, including the community orchestra, drama festival, Association of the Deaf, and Cana-dian National Institute of the Blind.

Some 100 dozen perogies also were donated to the upcoming “Community Chest” supper being held at La Place Rendez-Vous in February.

The attendance prize winner was Elsie Doucette, with the birthday winner for January being Grace Angus.

A reminder to all ladies that the district meeting will be held in Fort Frances on April 5-7. The “Roaring 20s” is the theme as the Legion auxiliary is celebrating its 75th anniversary.

If you wish to attend, contact Alfreda Easton (274-9105).

The auxiliary’s next meeting will be Wednesday, Feb. 13 at 7 p.m.
