We also host a FUN POOL NIGHT on Wednedays from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. We play 9-Ball. Cost is $2.00.

On May 25 we hosted our HONOURS AND AWARDS DINNER. We want to thank our former cadets who came and served the meal as well as to the volunteers who worked in the kitchen and cleaned up afterwards. It was very much appreciated. We were able to recognize our Legion Volunteers with Certificates of Appreciation (32) and Merit (40) for their continued support of the Branch.

Also, we recognized our members who have 20+ years of Membership in the Affiliate, Associate and Ordinary categories. In total, 25 members received their Branch Service Pins.

This year we lost a cherished member of our Branch - Comrade Jim Kennickell. President Mabel McCarthy awarded the President's Award posthumously, to Comrade Jim for all that he had done in service of the Branch over the years and to the many friendships he had here.

We want to thank everyone who continues to support the Branch.
