On behalf of the Branch Executive and the general membership, I’d like to thank the Congregation from the St George’s Chapel and Tim Horton’s Petawawa for their kind monetary donations, it is indeed very much appreciated. It is people and organizations like these that help us a great deal to maintain the status that we have within the community and for us to also help others in the community in any way we can. When the people of the community work together and help one another, and with so many donations that I have seen over the years, it shows that we have a strong and caring town full of people in Petawawa. For that I am thankful to be a part of what we have.

Our Yard Sale on July 31 was a very great success, thank you to all those who donated and those who came out to peruse our merchandise. Our first 50/50 draw of the season was also a success and again, thanks to all of those who purchased tickets. Our winners were a combined group that put all their names on the tickets. They were Dave, Cathy, John and Jane, congrats folks. Just to be clear, the OLG has the same rules, if a group buys and wins, all their names must be on the tickets. So come on out and support your local Legion. Keep an eye out for our August 50/50 draw on sale now. The next draw will be August 31 at 2 p.m. in the downstairs bar. Donate so we can keep contributing to the community.

This month at the Petawawa Legion we are having the First Special Service Force Devil’s Brigade 70th Anniversary closing ceremonies at the Legion on August 13 from 10:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. followed by the 2nd Annual Motorcycle Fund Raiser Ride for the Petawawa Legion at 1 p.m. $25 includes Ride, BBQ and Dance Sponsored by Veterans Enterprises.

BBQs every Friday from 4:30 until 6 p.m. Friday August 12 a BBQ is planned with Glenn and Murray hosting with pork chops and hamburgers. Come out this Friday and enjoy with your friends.

You can use the down stairs lounge and barbeques for family or get-togethers with only a small donation towards the cost of propane. The Legion is a great place to enjoy the beautiful scenery and the Petawawa River/Rapids and there is plenty of room for everyone. Also some horseshoe pits to play against each other.

New members and volunteers are needed in a big way to make our Petawawa Legion and fun place and success.
