VOLUNTEERS NEEDED for FRIDAY FISH & CHIPS - once a month

The proceeds from Friday Fish & Chips are essential to the financial health of the Branch. As the executive will tell you, without Fish & Chips the Branch would have closed its doors long ago! It's that essential.

Fish and Chips are served at the Branch EVERY Friday from 5:00 to 7:00
There are four (4) Fish & Chips Teams
Each team volunteers ONCE a month
Each team includes table servers, plate preparators, chips cook, fish cook
The teams bond - there is great camaraderie - it's actually kind of fun
There are other volunteers serving the Branch during Friday Fish & Chips - they would appreciate 'a day off' once in a while
Due to various circumstances, VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED NOW

Please consider volunteering for your Branch for this important and rewarding cause. Bring a friend along as well - membership is not a requirement.
Respond by return email or contact the office/bar in person or call: 905-639-6400/905-639-6060.

Remembrance Day 2014 Video

A YouTube slideshow video was created with the photographs taken by Tom Bochsler during the Remembrance Day Parade, Remembrance Ceremony, and the Laying of Wreaths. The soundtrack includes recitation of In Flanders Fields by 3 war veterans at Sunnybrook Hospital. Click on the link below to view the slideshow.

'Thank you' to Tom and others who contributed Remembrance Day photographs.

The Branch needs BINGO CALLERS to continue the fun Saturday afternoons for our Bingo players. The Branch proceeds from Saturday Bingo are used for charitable assistance in the Burlington community.

Please consider volunteering a couple of hours for your Branch on Saturday afternoons: 2:00 to 4:00. The more that volunteer, the less number of 2-hours-on-Saturday each caller would be needed; ie, 'the more the merrier'.

No experience? - not to worry. Members are available to train.

This could be your first New Years resolution: facilitating fellow members enjoying a couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon and contributing to the financial assistance of those in need within the Burlington community.

Having trouble deciding on New Year's resolutions? - don't forget to attend the big one - ST. PATRICK'S DINNER, DANCE AND SILENT AUCTION at the Branch, Tuesday March 17th: FOOD (chef Quinn's fabulous corned beef & cabbage), FUN, MANNING IRISH DANCERS, ENTERTAINMENT by JUKEBOX for listening & DANCING pleasure, SILENT AUCTION.

This is the Branch's primary fund raiser. Mark your calendar and plan to join us for a terrific evening and at the same time, contribute to the financial welfare of YOUR Legion.

Anyone out there a bar tender? The Branch needs to hire at least 2, primarily for weekends. If you or someone you know could meet the qualifications in the job description below & attached and is available to work weekends, please contact the office: 905-639-6400 or bar 905-639-6060.

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
