75th Anniversary

Today May 8th, 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of Victory Europe (VE Day). We remember those that paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom today. Letís also not forget those that did return to carry the torch and create the great Canada of today. It took 6 years to reclaim liberty to Europe. Please take 30 minutes of your time to view this video by Veterans Affairs Canada.

It's up to us as individuals, neighbours, friends and family to stay safe, stay home If not feeling well and stay healthy.

100+ Years later

As November 11th, 2018 was 100 years after the end of the Armistice that was to mark the end of all wars, wars and conflict are still prevalent today. Each year, parades and ceremonies are held all over the world so that we carry the torch that was handed to us in memory of those who did not return as they will not die but will always be remembered. Closer to home are those that did return in distant past and most recently that are waging their own internal war. This song by Nova Scotian J. P. Cormier entitled "Hometown Battlefield" I think is apropo. Have a listen.

2021/2022 General Meeting for Elections and Other Updates

The General Meeting for a new Executive was conducted on September 19th, 2020. A list of the new Executive can be found on the Unit Executive page. At this time 2021.10.17, the new Executive is trying to phase in some activity and still keeping within the rules and guidelines of the Provincial Health Office. There is now crib on Thursdays at 1:00 PM and for the rest of October, meat draws on Saturdays at 5:00 PM. We can anticipate Saturday meat draws during November but it all depends on the PHO. I attended a meeting for November 11th a couple of weeks ago and at this point, we are not sure what it will look like. We have a couple of contingencies but that is all I can say for now. Please bear with us as we make this transition in phase three and prepare for phase four of the COVID-19 restrictions being lifted.
