Roll Call’s calling

Another week without a winner for Roll Call – the pot is more than $80 now, so if you want to be eligible to win this jackpot just be at the Legion weekdays at 12:30 and on Saturday at 3 p.m. and if your name is called – you will walk away with the money – easy peasy.

So here’s a thought… come in for lunch and enjoy one of Deanna’s daily specials with your choice of salad bar or soup buffet or come in this Saturday for the Easter bonnet parade and tea and wander off to the lounge at 3 p.m. to see if you are the winner. You can even get in on the meat draw, 2 – 5 p.m. It just gets better and better.

There is no admission to enter your bonnet in the parade and yes, there are prizes – so be creative. Just think, when was the last time you witnessed a bonnet parade or for that matter entered one? It will be great fun and someone is going to walk away with the prizes – it might as well be you.

There is no limit on age or style so the sky is the limit – do your worst and hope for the best.  And while you are there enjoy a cup of tea and some wonderful desserts. Tea and sweets are $4 but wear your Easter bonnet and it is only $3. Tea starts at 1 p.m. Judging begins at 2 p.m. – see you there.

The Legion Show Off is only three weeks away. The phone has been ringing off the hook with people booking their booths for this popular event. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to showcase your business.

Contact Wanda at the Legion office, 992-6819 without delay – we do not want anyone to be turned away due to lack of space. Opening ceremonies are May 6, 7 p.m. with the Quesnel Pipes and Drums leading a formal colour party.

Plenty of free stuff also at this lifestyles exhibition. Admission is free and you will not want to miss any of it. It all takes place May 6 – 8.

Zumba classes are available again – this time they are scheduled for Fridays. Be sure to check in the next time you are at the branch to find out when the exact Fridays are as the vary from week to week.

What does not vary is the fun and great workout you will get when Sheryl from Heather Hartridge Fitness puts you through this great workout.

The admission is still only $3 so if you are looking for something to get rid of those winter blues and get you ready for spring – this just may be it.

Try it out and then head on over to the lounge afterwards with the group for coffee and social time.  Now that is a great way to spend a morning.

You can enjoy this and much more at your local Legion.  Drop in – you will like what you see.
