Catherine has been a great resource for the Legion. Helping with numerious projects for the Artifacts Committee.
We have been trying for a few months to track down this very busy young lady. To present her with a Legion Certificate of Appreciation for all of her hard work while here on a co-op assignment. We hope to have her help out again when she is available. A avid historian herself. She was a great addition to the research and artifact groups of the Legion. We wish her all the best in her future endeavors. Great Job, Bravo Zulu.

The start of a new year and I wish everyone well. The road ahead of us will no doubt have a few potholes in it, but working together as a team we will overcome all obstacles.
Being president you run into a lot of different situations, some bad, some you shake your head and wonder where that came from and then the pleasant ones. Like the awesome $5,000.00 donation to the branch from the Ladies Auxiliary and then the $1,500.00 donation from Sir Sam Seniors and all the other smaller but just as significant donations made. As you come into the branch you will see what these donations can do to benefit your surroundings and make your visit a pleasurable one.
Your executive and all the great volunteers make this branch one of the best in all of Ontario.
Yours in Comradeship
Building Chairman Report:
It is now time to cross your fingers, cross your toes and hope for the best. Our applications for the C.H.E.S.T. Fund and New Horizons will be looked at again and we will find out at later date if we were successful. I’m still waiting on a report from the geologist on our driveway dilemma and I’ll keep you informed as best I can.
Just so everyone doesn’t go into shock! If we are fortunate to get the funding, your driveway will be closed for a few days. I will be totally ( #$@%&) if I hear one complaint about it being fixed..
There are a few little projects we would like to see get completed. With all the great volunteers we have I know it will get done. If you have something in mind let Fred or I know.
By the time you receive this newsletter it will be into our new year. I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a great New Years.
I would like to thank the men of the Branch Executive who served our Christmas Dinner and to President Howie for entertaining us. A big thank you to Bev Johnston for all your continued help during the Poppy week in the kitchen every day. I would like to thank everyone who donated to our food hamper fundraiser, the funds to the Service Dogs for our Veterans with P.T.S.D. Also thank you to everyone who donated and helped out with our Annual Tea & Bazaar.
The winner of the food hamper was Gail Scruton from Beaverton and winner for the early bird membership draw was Jan Patrick.
Ladies Auxiliary zone team darts will be February 2nd 2019 in Lindsay and also we will be hosting two Darts Ontario, February 3rd and March 3rd. We will need volunteers for both of these functions in the kitchen.
Until next time,
Kimberley Junkin, President Ladies Auxiliary Br. 67

Colour Parties lead Legion Parades, play a prominent role in Remembrance Ceremonies and open Legion meetings and Conventions. They command attention and remind us all
of the Legion’s commitment to Canada's Veterans.
The Royal Canadian Legion has a long history of loyalty and community service, and one of the most visible signs of that is the presence of Colour Parties at most Legion events from the Branch level up to and including Dominion Command.
Members of the Colour Party wear full Legion Dress and carry a set of flags that represent the Legion and the principles on which the Legion is founded.
Sergent-at-Arms for Sir Sam Hughes Branch 67 Royal Canadian Legion. Comrade Dave St Denis.
First, I would like to THANK all the volunteers for their help over the Holiday season. It sure was a busy time of year! A very, very, special thanks to Joanne for all her great help! Also I would be remised not to mention how much of a help Ron Carter was for his time as our chef during Mike’s absence with cause.
They say when you retire you should keep yourself busy. Being kitchen chairman, I’ve hit the jackpot! Lol
On that note it is also my responsibility to make sure we can make a profit but not over price ourselves. So in 2019 we will be going over our prices and along with the executive we will make our decision.
Hope everyone had a great New Year’s Eve Party and wish you all the best in the New Year!!
