Oh my here we are in the first week of July. Where has the time gone?

The Greater Petawawa Civitan Club members are taking a break. Our next Bingo will be July 8. We hope you all had a great Canada Day. Drive carefully and if you go near the water, keep an eye on the children. On July 8, our 52 special will be $1,800 and if not won, it will be $1900 on July 15. Hope to see you there.

At our general meeting on June 13, we had some special guests attend: Civitan Governor Elect Louise Kinney from Chateauguay, QC, Civitan Maxine Leggett from Kanata –Statesville Civitan Club, Civitan Jack Wright from the TLC Civitan Club, Civitan Cindy Lamorie, District Area Director Cobden and Civitan Governor Bonnie Tarrant, Pembroke. It was really nice to see the other Civitan Club members come to our Greater Petawawa Civitan Club meeting and see what we are doing for our Town of Petawawa and area.

By the way, if you and your children have been to the playground at the Civic Centre, you will see the Civitan Club sign. The Greater Petawawa Civitan Club pays for the upkeep of that playground and at this time, we are raising money to make it a much safer place to enjoy a day with the children. So when you support the Greater Petawawa Civitan Club Bingo on Sunday nights, you are supporting your children and others. Yes, we are still looking for people to come and join our club. If you would like more information about Civitan and what we do, just come and talk to one of our members. The old saying is: when you help others you will feel happy about yourself.

Oh by the way, have you registered for our Fishing Tournament that will be held at the Pembroke marina on August 18? If not, you better do it now! Contact people are Civitan John VandenBaar at 613-717-5674 and Civitan Allen Stewart or Civitan Brian Miner at 613-687-4503. You can also go to the Carefor website. There will be something for the Children as well.

Now if you are new to Petawawa or area, we invite you to come to out to our Bingo that is held every Sunday night at the Petawawa Civic Centre, 16 Civic Centre Rd. You can’t miss it - there is a ball field and playground and a Mini-putt there too. We welcome all new people to our great Town of Petawawa. Hope to see you at the Bingo.

That’s all for now, God bless and be happy
