PETAWAWA BRANCH

CANADIAN GUARDS ASSOCIATION

10 MAY 2017


From your President Norman McBride, who reports he is glad to see Spring after that winter we went through.  Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Bar-B-Q.  Committee making plans for Regimental Parade 2018 is very busy working out details, it’s only 1 and a half years till Oct. 2018.  Thanks everyone, see you all soon.  Norm McBride.

For those involved with the BOD it will be held prior to the BBQ , I think Ottawa members are planning for around 1 P.M.

For those that don't recall here is your executive list.  President Norm McBride, Vice President Bucky Buchanan, Treasurer Jean Clark, Membership Henry Campbell, Secretary Jean Campbell.

Such a good turnout for the last BBQ that the committee has decided we will have another one this June 2017 with the addition of holding the Ottawa BOD Meeting the same day.  This is a very important meeting as the 2018 Reunion Plans will be gone over at this time.  Also a good way of touching base with all your friends after a long cold and snowy winter for those who stayed in Petawawa , some lucky ones escaped to a much nicer climate.  

The Summer BBQ will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 517 Petawawa on 10 June 2017 – Meet & Greet 3-4 P.M.  BBQ to follow.  This year it will be held in the main hall of the Petawawa Legion so no stairs to navigate. Cost per person will be $10.00; please try to let the ticket folks know if you plan on attending by 5 June to help them plan food quantities required.
