Kitchen Chairman Report

Kitchen Chairman Report:

The last couple of months we did have some things going on at the legion, the branch started with a Wedding on Jan. 5th, then Ontario Darts, Zone Shuffleboard and District Cribbage and the Olympics. L.A. President Kim Junkin had a L.A. Zone Darts and her turn for Ontario Darts. I wish to thank Mike for working all of these events for Kim and I. Everything in the kitchen went well with the help from all the volunteers. Special thank you to Judy Eyres, Marlene Bartley, Joan Kirkpatrick, Joanne Pritchard, Annie MacGillivray for taking the orders at Shuffleboard and Diane McGinnis-Fountain for helping me serve the food at the Olympics. Communication is so very important in any business adventurers.

Bookings are starting to come in and it is great to see because they are return customers from last year. This all due in part by our great many volunteers that help in the kitchen. At this time I wish to thank the Special FRIDAY LUNCH LADIES Joan Kirkpatrick, Marlene Bartley, Cindy Buda, Joanne Pritchard, Edith Baker, extra helpers Annette Cameron, Judy Eyres, Jean Davis, Pat Eagan. These ladies work well together every Friday all year long, which makes our lunches very successful, a big thank you to you all. An important part of this lunch is our dish washers, Ken Sheehey, Donna Berry, Lynne Alexopoulos and Craig Levine. Our volunteers arrive at the branch about 9:30 a.m. and we are usually all done cleaning up about 2:30 p.m. If you wish to volunteer in the kitchen, please see Joanne Pritchard, I’m sure she can find a task for you at one of our events. I would like to thank Ron Cooper for his idea of grilled chicken on a bun, for his Tuesday and Thursday BBQ, it sure is delicious!!! Kim Junkin’s idea of veggies and dip I thought was very good, so I’m going to try it again and see how it goes. The price is $3.00 for veggies with dip; we need to try new things.

I wish to thank Ron for all his help in the kitchen while he can. I would like to thank Joanne Pritchard and Wally Tomasik for picking up all the food needed every Tuesday for the week. I wish to thank Kim Junkin and Wally Tomasik for taking care of the setup for the funeral tables and chairs on Thursday February 14th as we were away in Kingston. Kim Junkin and Annette Cameron are a great help to Jan Patrick in the office as bookings are coming in and the office daily duties need to get done.

Yours in Comradeship
