This Sunday, February 10 drop into the branch between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. for your breakfast put on by the branch. Come out and enjoy a full breakfast to start your day. Open to all so bring the family.

On Friday, February 15 is a Valentine’s Dance from 7-11 p.m. with DJ VSM Entertainment. You will have videos to go with the music and it is a fun evening to enjoy with your sweetheart or your friends. Everyone Age of Majority is welcome to attend, so come out for your supper of fish and chips from 4:30-6 p.m. and stay for the evening.

Our Catch the Ace is growing, but slowly. We know everyone is buying for the fantastic jackpot for the Deep River Hospital and that is great as they serve us in Petawawa with medical care. We hope that once their jackpot goes we can get more people supporting ours. Our last Ace draw allowed us to make sizeable donations to the Petawawa Pantry, Padres Hamper Fund, Trucker’s Toy Drive, and the Petawawa Legion Community Band for uniforms to name a few. The more we can raise, the more donations we can make to the community.

With only a few outstanding invoices left to come in for the Poppy Fund, we want to thank the community for their generous support again this year. With the donations we received, we have funds to support Veterans in need and support programs that benefit them. This would not be possible without the community.

Soup and sandwich Wednesdays continue weekly from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Different soup every week with egg and a different meat sandwich weekly. Drop in and enjoy a nice hot lunch. Everyone is welcome.
