Cribbage and a meat spin...

From Northumberland Today:

Meat spin Saturday

Posted By Karen O'Hara

"Happy New Year from all your fellow Comrades at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 30, Port Hope.

On Dec. 20, 2008, Comrade Reny Debattista hosted a very successful cribbage tournament and the winners were: first place, Janice Delong and Carol Kirton; second place, Bonnie and Pat Brereton.

Following the cribbage tournament was a turkey spin and thanks go to Comrades Dean Brereton, Kim Whalen and Paul Watts for organizing all those turkeys! A special thank you to Dean Brereton and his wife, Karen, for donating reusable grocery bags and Christmas ornaments.

On Jan. 1, 2009, the branch hosted its annual levee with an overwhelming crowd — standing room only. I would like to personally thank Comrade Kim Whalen for assisting me with the preparation of the buffet and also to Comrade Rick Austin and his wife, Joanne, and Laurie Lees for their assistance. Comrade Nancy Elsom was on the clean-up crew and did a fabulous job and it is all very much appreciated!

On Jan. 3, Comrade Jim McIvor hosted a very successful euchre tournament and the winners were: first place, Fraser and Sandra Bolton; second place, Bonnie and Pat Brereton; third place, Doug Abrams and Bob Martell.

On Saturday, Jan. 10, we are having another meat spin, brought back by popular demand, starting at 1:30 p.m. The cost is $2 per spin; it’s a lot of fun!

Please note, the general membership meeting is scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 11 at 2 p.m., instead of the second Monday of the month. We encourage all members to attend.

The Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 30 is conveniently located at 29A Thomas St. (south end of the Lions Centre) and is open each day at noon (closed Mondays). Hope to see you at the branch — all members and future members welcome!"
