Legion prepares for Chinese New Year

This column has been a wonderful way to stay in touch with all Legion Branch 94 members as well as the public at large.

This column has been a wonderful way to stay in touch with all Legion Branch 94 members as well as the public at large.

I simply mentioned last week about the upcoming Legion’s Trade Fair (we are still trying to decide on the final name for it) and already booths are being booked.

So, if you want to make sure you do not miss out, it would be best to either call the Legion or pop in and pick up a form. We don’t want anyone being disappointed.

I did warn you though.

This week  the executive held it’s meeting. This was to ensure all your executive is ready for the general meeting Feb. 1, 7 p.m. in the hall. Hope to see you all there.

We will be announcing the events planned for this coming year and also asking for a vote on a number of items as well.

You will not want to miss out in having your say on these items.

Feb. 2 Rock/Metal Jam will be held in the hall.

From what I have heard from the first jam, the crowd was not very big, but what they lacked in size them made up for in enthusiasm – apparently the dance floor was on fire with Romeo and the gang.

Try it for yourself and see if this is something you are interested in.

Jan. 29 the annual Robbie Burns’ Night will be held in the hall, hosted by the Quesnel Pipes and Drums. 

You will be treated to all the fanfare that this occasion brings – complete with dancing with the Braveheart Dancers both young and old; singing with the Sweet Harmony singers; the cool sounds of pipes and drums; as well as a traditional Scottish meal with all the trimmings, cooked and served by those adorable and very competent LA ladies. 

All for $30 per person. The evening will finish off with dancing for all. I hear there are still some seats available, so hurry in to grab those tickets.

While you are getting those tickets, you may as well buy your tickets for the Chinese New Year’s event, Feb. 4 in the lounge.

This will begin with a complete array of Chinese delectables to feast on, followed by Chinese entertainment.

Afterwards, you can dance the evening away in the lounge to our canned music.

You can put in requests for your favourite songs – such a great way to end your evening.

There will only be 70 tickets sold for this event and at only $20 per person, you will want to hurry in so that you do not miss out.

February is proving to be a busy month beginning with the Old Time Fiddlers dance Feb. 5; Sweetheart Dinner and Dance Feb. 13 and Perogy Night/Meat Draw Feb. 18 – as well as the usual events that are slated each week.

The flea market began last Sunday and continues in the hall and basement until the spring. Come on in and find your very own treasure. Don’t forget to dicker over price.

Those flea market ladies love the challenge this affords them.

Much to see and do at your local Legion – come in and see for yourself.
