We are looking for new toys for the less fortunate this Christmas. If you can donate a toy or two it would be very much appreciated by the families on our list. The kids range from newborns to late teens. If you prefer, a monetary donation would go toward gift certificates or food items. Items can be dropped off at the branch every day. Thank you for any help you can give.

We have entered into December, so that means Christmas is just around the corner and then the New Year. Tickets for our New Year’s Eve bash are on sale at the bar during regular hours. Live band Whiskey Tango Foxtrot will be entertaining you for the night. Your ticket includes party favours and a hot and cold evening lunch. This event is open to all. Tickets are reduced for advance purchase and go up at the door if any are left.

Catch the Ace jackpot is now over $4,500 so drop in and get your ticket during regular bar hours. Anyone over 18 can purchase a ticket for their chance to pick the lucky envelope that holds the Ace of Spades. Winning that money before Christmas would buy some nice gifts or if you win after, it could pay off those bills. Everyone can use some extra money so get your ticket every week.

We have one more Wednesday soup and sandwich taking place on Dec. 13 from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Drop in for a hot soup and filling sandwich that is fast and won’t break the lunch budget. Everyone is welcome.

Members of the Ladies Auxiliary are reminded of your Christmas dinner on Tuesday, Dec. 19.

You have until the end of December to pay your dues to remain a member in good standing so drop into the branch during regular hours to pay at the bar.
