Comrades,

Well spring has arrived and we are looking forward to continued fun times in our Branch. Warmer weather means sitting on the sun deck among friends and enjoying our summer activities.

This year Greenfield Park is celebrating it’s 100th birthday and it will be celebrated from July 2nd to the 10th. Our Branch will be inviting all the people returning to our community for a visit to drop in and chat a little. It should prove to be a fun and enjoyable time. Greenfield Park was built by many of our Legion members over the last 70 years so we will welcome all visitors in to visit with us and to talk about the old days when life was simpler and a lot less stressful. So welcome them with open arms when they drop by over the summer.

Let’s continue to support all our Branch activities including the golf tournament on June 3rd at the International 2000 and other activities that take place. On a more personal note I want to thank all the Legion executive and all the members for their support over the last couple of months. It was a time of mixed emotions but now it is behind us so we can get back to normal.

Have a great spring and enjoy the sunshine.

Bernie Constantini
President

I would like to thank everyone on the Ladies Auxiliary as well as other supporters who have been helping us over the past few months with various catering events. A special thanks to all the Bakers that have been cooking for our March Flea Market.

We will be busy in April with a wedding, birthday party dart banquet as well as a joint venture (Sugaring-Off private party) with the Ways & Means.

Also, don’t forget the monthly Bingo on the 1st Wednesday of every month.

Since the last Coverall we have received 2 new applications for membership and we still have room for many more so please come on board. You may find it more interesting than watching the parade go by. It is always a benefit to have new ideas and believe me, we are open to suggestions.

Francine Cantwell,
President, Ladies auxiliary

Eh bien, le printemps est arrivé et nous envisageons de continuer à avoir du plaisir à l’intérieur de notre filiale. Des températures plus chaudes signifient s’asseoir sur le balcon entre amis et profiter de nos activités estivales.

Cette année, Greenfield Park célèbre ses 100 ans et les festivités se dérouleront du 2 au 10 juillet prochains. Notre filiale invitera tous les gens qui reviennent dans notre communauté pour une visite à venir nous voir et jaser. Cette période devrait être un temps de plaisir et de joie. La ville de Greenfield Park a été construite par plusieurs membres de notre légion depuis plus de 70 ans. Tous les visiteurs sont les bienvenus pour nous rendre visite et parler du bon vieux temps alors que la vie était plus facile et beaucoup moins stressante. Nous les accueillerons à bras ouverts alors qu’ils nous ferons une visite cet été.

Continuons à supporter toutes les activités de la filiale incluant le tournoi de golf du 3 juin au Club International 2000 et toutes les autres activités qui auront lieu.

Sur une note plus personnelle, je désire remercier l’exécutif de la légion et tous les membres pour leur support depuis les quelque deux derniers mois. Cette période a été un temps de mixtes émotions mais ceci est maintenant derrière nous et nous pouvons retourner à la normale.
Je vous souhaite un très beau printemps et profitez du soleil.

Le président,
Bernard Constantini
President

J’aimerais remercier Les dames auxiliaires ainsi que que les supporteurs de la cause qui nous ont aidé durant les derniers mois avec les différentes événements. Un merci spécial à toutes les cuisinières qui ont contribué au succès du Marché aux puces le 6 mars dernier.

A venir
Le mois d’avril sera très occupé.
Mariage, Fête d’anniversaire, Banquet de dards.
De plus; conjointement avec la présidente du « Ways and Means» ; nous organiserons le 2 avril prochain un souper de cabane à sucre (location privée)
Aussi, n’oubliez pas les bingos mensuels le 1er mercredi du mois.

Depuis la parution du dernier «Coverall»; nous avons reçu 2 nouvelles demandes d’adhésion, il va s’en dire que nous avons de la place pour beaucoup d’autres dames qui sont intéressées. Il est préférable de s’engager plutôt que de regarder la parade défilée. Les idées nouvelles sont bénéfiques et croyez moi; nous sommes ouvert aux suggestions.

If I may use the eloquent words of Martin Luther King Jr., I have a dream and I wish to share it with you.

I have a dream where any child can look forward to growing up, to playing all the childhood games his or her heart desires, to be just a child like all the other children.

I have a dream where any young adult can look forward to furthering his/her education and embarking on a career of his/her dream. And in that dream, the young adult can even contemplate to starting a family.

I have a dream where any parent can look forward to seeing the smiles of their child and to guiding their child to adulthood.

I have a dream where anyone can grow old with their spouse, with their family, and with their friends.

I have a dream where cancer is beaten.

I will be walking with the Ruth's Army Team in the 2011 Weekend to End Women's Cancers. All the funds our team raise will benefit the Segal Cancer Centre of the Jewish General Hospital. If you wish to support my dream, please go to the following link, http://www.endcancer.ca/site/TR/Events/Montreal2011?px=2919044&pg=personal&fr_id=1454.

If you want to enjoy a fun afternoon AND support my walk, please consider attending the Afternoon British Tea as presented by Ruth's Army. Details about the event can be found at http:// www.tinthepark.ca/.

Please feel free to forward this email to people on your mailing list who may have a similar dream.

God bless,
Ed

The following news release on March 23rd shows that sticking with something can produce results in the long run—another reason to get behind and support the Committee for Saving Ste. Anne’s Hospital for our Veterans.


MINISTER MUST REVIEW VETERANS FILES IN LIGHT OF DORNAN DECISION



OTTAWA- The Veterans Affairs Minister must move quickly to review the files of many veterans who have been turned down for disability benefits by the Veterans Review and Appeal Board (VRAB) says New Democrat Veterans Affairs Critic Peter Stoffer (Sackville-Eastern Shore).

“I am pleased that the Minister and his Department has finally granted Steve Dornan of Nova Scotia a disability pension by overturning multiple denials by the Veterans Review and Appeal Board,” said Stoffer. “What this shows is that the Minister himself does not have confidence in VRAB’s decisions. It also means that the Department should undertake a review of all veterans’ files who have been repeatedly denied disability benefits by VRAB.”

Stoffer also noted that the Conservatives have taken no action on reforming the Veterans Review and Appeal Board as they promised to do prior to the 2006 federal election.

“I would like to see VRAB eliminated. So many veterans that I speak to have no confidence in the decisions that this quasi-judicial board makes. It angers them to know that the members of VRAB are often appointed because of their political connections and have little military or medical experience.”

“If the federal government refuses to eliminate VRAB, they should reform it completely by appointing members to the board who have experience in the Canadian Forces and RCMP or have medical qualifications.”

“It has taken the Dornan’s eight years to succeed in this fight and I know so many veterans who have repeatedly been denied disability pensions that are attributable to their military service. I call on the Minister to immediately conduct a review of all veterans’ files who have been repeatedly denied disability pensions by VRAB.”



The following extract from a letter received from the Dornan’s indicates a win with their issue, but it also send a message that Veterans must continue to persist with their different issues to hold Veterans Affairs accountable.

Mission accomplished....A 5/5 pension with 20% assessment for non Hodgkin lymphoma based on medical mismanagement (about $700 a month) has been awarded to Steven.......yup pension awarded but nothing to do with Bosnia or depleted uranium, which was our premise for an award for the past 9 years. The good news is that his medicine and treatments will be covered 100% now! This is a big weight off our shoulders.

Go figure.....awarded a pension for something we didn't even apply for. I guess a win is a win...but it's kinda like winning the race just because all the other participants crashed! Feel a little cheated, but we'll take it! We will continue the fight for Veterans rights and to hold VAC accountable to all those they serve.

Ed Z, once a Friday night favourite in our lounge moved west many years ago. He was recently in town for a brief visit and took time on March 18th to once again provide an evening’s entertainment in our lounge. As evidenced in these pics visitors to our lounge on this Friday night thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thanks Ed Zawada for a great evening. We enjoyed the visit!

Just a brief note to say thanks to everyone for a great weekend at Branch 94. The Saturday night supper /dance was a true success. I heard nothing but good things about the meal and the dance itself.

Sunday afternoon in the Branch was alive with the sound of music and sound of feet on the dance floor.

The Irish Coffee went like hotcakes and the Irish Stew was delicious. The atmosphere in the lounge was something to die for. The sound of people talking, singing and laughing was a joy to hear.

Although everyone worked hard to make it a successful weekend I want to point out the hard work of Cheryl Moores who led the team of volunteers and who put in hours of work.

Thank you very much Cheryl. Your devotion to Branch 94 shows with each project you lead and we are proud of you.

Congratulations on a weekend that will not be soon forgotten .

St. Patrick’s Weekend at Branch 94



Rumour has it that a great time was had by all who attended our St. Patrick’s events. According to the attendee’s the Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner was very good and the evening was very much a success thanks to all the great members and friends that helped me.

Over the past several years George Tyson has made the arrangements for, picked up, and delivered the Corned Beef to the Branch on the Thursday night before the event. Thank you George for once again taking care of this and also for helping me with the recipe for the brine. Early on Friday morning while Bernie, Lew, Andrea and Helena peeled and cut all the veggies, I prepared the brine and started to cook the meat. Sue was busy with the decorations and preparing things for the Saturday morning set up. Thank you Randy, Rob and Todd for the great “slicing” job!

Back in the kitchen early Saturday morning I was boiling all those veggies in the stock from the corned beef and making the desert, while Sue, Helena, Andrea, Shirley, Cindy and Kim were very busy setting the tables and decorating the hall in the spirit of St. Patrick. Thanks Patrick, your coffee was great!

By 5:00 pm all the helpers were back in place. Celina and Georgette joined the crew to help get everything in the warmers so everything stayed hot until it was served. Todd did the heavy pot lifting which was much appreciated by all of us. The servers, runners, ticket takers, Sue, Andrea, Shirley, Cindy, Kim, Todd, Wayne, and Randy (ask BJ) and Celina and Georgette did a great job with the clean-up of the kitchen.

Special thanks to the surprise guest, OUR PIPER, Jeff McCarthy who volunteered to come and play some tunes just after supper. He was great and everyone seemed to enjoy his tunes. Once the dance started, the floor was full the entire night. It was a real “party” crowd.

Charlene and Rick did a great job on the bar – lots of smiles & no line ups! Sundays Irish Coffee and Stew was a great day also. Thanks go out to Carol, Bill and Lew who served up a great Irish Coffee. 90 of them were served in all!. Before Ted went away on holiday, he was kind enough to make us his famous Irish Stew and according to everyone that had some, it was “great”. 78 bowls of stew were served. So thanks Ted, you were here in spirit! Bernie thanks for helping me out with your muscle power. (great teamwork)

Ted Danko did a great job with the music, threw a few Irish tunes in as well and everyone seemed to have a lot of fun. It was nice to see the branch so “alive” on a Sunday afternoon so, thank you to all of our members that attended. Linda, thanks, you did a lot of running around for this event and helped out behind the scenes in many ways. To Shirley many thanks for all your help in the kitchen and jumping in when needed and to Christine as well. Hollis and Bill thanks so much for helping me clean up afterwards. It was much appreciated.

I purposely left one thank you to the end and that is because Monique Label is always there to sell the 50/50 or raffle tickets, or Legion gear, and this weekend was no exception. She and Mickie did a great job selling on Saturday. The Saturday night winner took in $160.00. On Sunday the pot was $80.00. Thank you Monique, for your dedication. As you can see, it takes a lot of people to run these functions and not only do they help and put a lot of time and effort in making these events successful, they also buy and pay for their ticket as well.

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE HELPED OUT WHENEVER YOU COULD, AS WELL AS TO ALL OF OUR MEMBERS AND FRIENDS WHO ATTEND AND SUPPORT OUR
FUNCTIONS.

Cheryl Moores


 

A BIT OF HISTORICAL TRIVIA


Early politicians required feedback from the public to determine what people considered important. Since there were no telephones, tv’s or radios, the politicians sent their assistants to the local taverns, pubs and bars. They were told to ‘go sip some ale’ and listen to people’s conversations and political concerns. Many assistants were dispatched at different times. ‘You go sip here’ and ‘you go sip there’. The two words “go sip” were eventually combined when referring to the local opinion and, thus we have the term ‘gossip’

Sheer Nightgowns Can Be Fatal

On Friday a well-to-do husband walked into Victoria's Secret to purchase a sheer negligee for his wife. He was shown several possibilities ranging in price from $250 to $500 -- the more sheer, the higher the price. He opted for the sheerest item, paid the $500, and took it home. He presented it to his wife and asked her to go upstairs, put it on, and model it for him. Once upstairs, the wife being no dummy , had an idea .... it's so sheer that it might as well be nothing, I won't put it on, I'll do the modeling naked, return it tomorrow, and keep the $500 refund for myself. She appeared naked on the balcony and struck a pose.

The husband looked up and said, "Good Grief! You'd think for $500, they'd at Least iron it!"

He never heard the shot. Funeral on Thursday at Noon. Closed coffin.

As they have done so often in the past MULLINS SPORTS have again demonstrated their support of the Legion and other community teams and groups. This time they are lending their support to the “Save St. Anne’s “ campaign. The Committee for Saving Ste. Anne’ s Hospital for Veterans THANKS them for their support. It is much appreciated.

 

 

MORE HISTORICAL TRIVIA


At local taverns, pubs, and bars, people drank from pint and quart-sized containers. A bar maid’s job was to keep an eye on the customers and keep the drinks coming. She had to pay close attention and remember who was drinking in ‘pints’ and who was drinking in ‘quarts’, hence the phrase ‘minding your P’s and Q’s’

Almost two years ago Branch 94 under took to sponsor the Grenadier Guards Centennial Cadet Corps. We had in the preceding years provided them with our hall free of charge for fund raisers and ceremonies.

The cadets in their turn served as waiters at our Remembrance suppers and had been part of our Remembrance parades and ceremonies. Becoming their sponsors seemed a natural evolution.

This year the cadets changed their base of operations from Centennial High School where they had been based to the René-Veillet Recreation Center on Parklane. Branch 94 was invited to take part in the official opening of their new facilities.

We were provided a guided tour of their new space and shown how it gave them more room to operate and display their trophies. Indeed it did seem an improvement on the space they had been allotted at CHS. In addition there were some financial pluses

Since it had been impractical to have the cadets attend our Honours and Awards Night it was decided to use the opportunity to present Certificates of appreciation to a number of the cadets for their help.

And don’t forget that during the Greenfield Park Centennial celebrations from July 1st to July 10th many old friends from far-a-way places will be dropping into the Legion . Why not join them. You never know who you will meet and you just may spend many hours reminiscing old times.
