Veterans supper

This is for all Veterans, not just Legion members.

Could I appeal to you for a little space in your paper so that I may have a say on the Oyama Royal Canadian Legion’s Veterans supper on September 23 at the Oyama Community Hall.

The doors open at 5:00 for those who may want a drink and supper is at 6:00. Entertainment is at 7:00 featuring Sally Evans and Molly Boyd with Songs of the War Years and a sing along.

All Veterans get in free with their spouse. All others pay $12.00.

This is for all Veterans, not just Legion members.

Going back to 1946 when we worked on starting a Legion in Oyama, we had to have so many members to get a Charter, which we obtained by getting enough Veterans from Oyama, Winfield, Okanagan Centre and Carr’s Landing. In the old days we were open from 1:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m.

Today we’re open 3:00 to 6:00 or 11:00 depending on how many dart or pool players are around. Every Saturday is a meat-a-thon day and if any members would like to see other leagues start please come down.
