To All Volunteers,
We need a piano player for the Friday mornings 10am to 11:30am sing along with patients. Please let me know if you can help. If you know someone who can play piano to accompany a sing along for patients please encourage them to apply as volunteers.
We have song books with the words and music. They are all well-known sing along songs that patients love to sing. Other volunteers are there to accompany and encourage the singing with patients.

|BINGO CALLERS NEEDED
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.
When you volunteer you: facilitate fellow members enjoying a couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon and contribute to the financial assistance of those in need within the Burlington community.
The Branch relies heavily on the revenues from Friday Fish & Chips. It takes seventy (70) volunteers to make it happen. Additional persons ready, able and willing to volunteer ensures the continuing successes of our Fish & Chips evenings. Please consider putting your name forward to help out your Branch.
In particular, kitchen cooks are needed on a regular basis and also as 'reserves' in case cooks are unable to work their 'shift' on occasion. Would you be available to cook fries/chips one Friday a week? How about cooking fish? If you would like to help out your Branch in either of these 'opportunities' please reply to me or leave your name at the office or bar.
|Did you know there are books available in the lounge for you to take home and enjoy? They are located just to the left as you enter the doors into the lounge (next to the coat rack).
|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.
