Legion ladies suppers to resume


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.
