Our new executive for 2018-2019 is: President Civitan Brian Miner, Vice President Civitan John VandenBarr, Past President Civitan Darlene Lambert, Secretary Civitan Marie Arnold, Treasurer Civitan Charles (Chuck) Arnold. Directors: Civitans Donna Forget, Allen Stewart and Joan Ozon.

Well now it is time for all our Civitan members to get ready for a new year and upcoming events that will take place with Christmas just around the corner and everyone getting ready for the big day once again. There will be organizations looking for financial assistance so they can help those in need of food and clothing or toys for children in need.

The Greater Petawawa Civitan Club supports the food banks in Petawawa, Pembroke and Deep River, and we also support the hospitals in Deep River, Pembroke and the Children’s hospital in Ottawa. We support our veterans, seniors and we provide payment for a bus for the Ontario Special Olympics so they can get to their activities. There are others who need our help and we try to help them the best we can. To do all these things we need your help as well. How can you help us? Just by coming out to our bingo on Sunday night! Yes we are looking for people to come and join our great club. There is no cost to join us, just help at the Bingo or at some other events. Like I have said before, we hold a meeting once a month on the second Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Petawawa Civic Centre, 16 Civic Centre Rd.

Our Bingo is held every Sunday night at the Petawawa Civic Centre. So if you would like to find out what Civitan is all about, come and visit us. We would love to tell you about Civitan and all the things we do and have done. When you come to our Bingo we have a canteen with lots of goodies. We have coffee, tea, sandwiches, hot dogs, pop, candy, and if Civitan Marie or one of the others brings in some special baked goods, we have that as well. You can’t beat our prices, they are the best in town.

I was glad to see some new faces at our bingo the last few weeks. Remember if you need any help, just ask one of our helpers or one of the other players, they will be glad to help you. So have a great week and keep smiling.

That’s all for now, and God Bless and be happy.
