Kincardine Legion Corner: Royal Canadian Legion Branch 183

Do you have your tickets for Little Peter and the Elegants? This great 50’s 60’s band will be back at the legion on Saturday April 27. Tickets are limited so don’t delay getting yours or you might be disappointed. You can purchase tickets at Harbour Rose Boutique and the legion bar.

Branch elections will be taking place on April 28 at 2pm in the hall. Positions to be elected are Branch President, 1st Vice, 2nd Vice and 6 executive members. To run for president 1st or 2nd vice you need to have served on the executive for 1 year. To be eligible to be on the executive you must have been a legion member for one year. Any members wishing to run for any of the positions may let the nomination committee Mary Farrell or Maureen Couture know of their intent. Nominations by any member will also be taken from the floor, on the day of the election.

Any legion member who has paid their 2019 dues may vote. Members must show their membership card.

If you have not had a chance to listen to the fiddler’s in the clubhouse yet on Tuesday nights, I have good news they are there every Tuesday at 7pm. Grab a group of friends and come to the legion and enjoy an evening of fiddle music.

Catch the Ace draws take place on Wednesday at 4pm, we are happy to be teamed up with Special Olympics this time around. Catch the Ace tickets are sold at In Style Hair studio, Sleepers bed gallery, Jean’s Restaurant, Esso on Queen, Edward Fuels and the Legion Bar. Tickets go on sale on Thursday afternoon for the following week’s draw, at all outlets. If you missed getting your ticket at your favourite outlet before they were gathered up, they are available for last minute sales at the legion bar if there are tickets available, until a couple minutes before the draw.

The legion will be closed on Good Friday April 19.
