Once again here I am with just bit of news from the Greater Petawawa Civitan Club.

Life can change in just a minute or in just a second. If you need a special bed, wheelchair, or other help, where do you go? I ask that you just stop and think of all the things our clubs do. The Greater Petawawa Civitan Club is one of the clubs that supports all of these things. We hold bake sales or raffles but our biggest fundraiser is our Bingo that is held every Sunday night at the Petawawa Civic Centre. So when you play bingo at our bingo you are helping us help those who need help. We want to thank all those who do come out to our bingo every Sunday night. Thank you for your continuing support thoughout the years.

We are looking for people who would like to help us. There is no cost to join our club; we just ask you help out at the Bingo or other events that we hold. If you can attend a meeting once a month, it is held the second Wednesday at 7 p.m. If you would like more information about Civitan just see Civitans Marie Arnold, Brian Miner, Darlene Lambert, Donna Forget, Donna Hammel, John VandenBarr, Chuck Arnold, Faye Arnold, Cathy McCabe, Joan Ozon, Allen Stewart, Jean Belec, Hoppy Hopkins, Marie Molson, Peggy Richardson, Tracy McCumber, Joanne Austin. They will gladly get the information for you.

Now as some of you may know, I am trying to raise money for a special wheelchair swing for our park by the Civic Centre in Petawawa. The cost of this swing is around $20,000. In the next few weeks you will see bottles in different places so you can make your donation towards this swing. If everyone could donate one dollar I am quite sure we would have the money in a very short time. All money over and above the cost of the swing will go to help fix up all our parks in town.

Now for all you fisher men and women who would like more information about our Fishing derby on August 17 at the park in Pembroke, please call Civitan Brain Miner at 613-687-4503 or Civitan Allen Stewart at 613-735-3791 or Civitan John VandenBaar at 613-717-5674 and they will get you all set up for a great day of fishing. Bring all your family with you.

Hope to see you all at our next Bingo.

That is all I have for you this week, God bless.

Thought for the week: Life is short, what will you be remembered for?
