Remembrance Day Dinner

$15 Dinner at 6:00 p.m.
tickets available in the lounge.

Each year, Branch 60 presents the Legionnaire Of The Year Award to a member who has demonstrated outstanding service, above and beyond normal expectations of a member of the Royal Canadian Legion. Nominations are now open for this Award and will be accepted until October 31st when the Honours and Awards Committee will present the results to the Executive Committee for review.

The Top Hat Marching Orchestra is an integral part of the Branch: the Orchestra practices every Wednesday evening upstairs in the hall. They reciprocate by offering 4 performances to Branch 60 members during the year.

This being the 100th anniversary of the beginning of WW1 and the 70th of allied offences in WW2, the Orchestra is presenting a special performance (A SALUTE TO OUR HEROES) with the theme of honouring the sacrifices of those who served to liberate countries and preserve freedom. The concert will be performed at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre Saturday, November 1st at 7:00 PM. This is quite an appropriate date in that the Branch Poppy Campaign begins then. Poppies will be available in the lobby. The Branch Colour Guard will be featured as well as veterans and Branch members who will be part of the program (Bill Reid has agreed to participate).

Tickets are on sale now - including at Branch 60's lounge bar. Members are, of course, encouraged to attend.

On Monday, Aug. 4, the City of Burlington received nearly 200 mm of rain over three to five hours. That is equal to the total rainfall usually received in the months of July and August. The severe storm caused flooding on streets, highways and in more than 2,000 homes throughout Burlington. Damage to public and private property was significant.

Burlington veterans who require financial assistance for flood damages should contact the Branch 60 office: 905-639-6400.

At Fish & Chips/Dance last Friday evening, March 28th, Burlington MP Mike Wallace presented the Branch with a $25,000 cheque, the result of an application to the New Horizons For Seniors Program by Joe Sebastiao, Branch Chairman for Property as well as T.O.D. (Training, Organization, Development). Mike announced to the audience that the funds were granted for renovations in the Branch building for barrier-free public access.

Electrician Needed
Is there an electrician among our Branch 60 members available to do electrical repairs/modifications within the Legion building?
Norm Oliver has been volunteering his time to do this needed electrical work which has saved the Branch man
y thousands of dollars over the years.
Norm will be unavailable for a few months.
If so, please contact the office: 905-639-6400 or email me at branch60pro@gmail.com and I'll forward the contact information.

Burlington's Partnership West Food Bank has placed a large blue box in the Branch lounge and has requested of Legion members and guests that they donate food for their current food drive into this box. Their mission (from web site http://partnershipwest.org/pwfb/) "...is to serve the needs of the community of Burlington by providing emergency food to residents in need in Burlington and to co-ordinate food and financial donations from local churches, organizations and individuals."

The Colour Party for Branch 60 is very much in need of a few new members to bolster our numbers. We are a kilted Colour Party with 40 years continuous service to Branch 60. We attend the monthly branch meeting and participate in 3 regular parades a year, plus any to which we are invited.. (i.e. Simcoe, London). There is not a large requirement in time so we can fit into most schedules. If you are interested, please either call Murray Sutherland at (905) 639-2686 in Burlington, or leave your name and number at the Branch 60 bar and I will certainly call back.
Thank You,
Murray Sutherland
