A photo of the group at the presentation of the Rona Offord Afghans on 19 Dec. at Carveth - Afghans are knit by Rona Offord and given out to Veterans for thanks in all they have done for our country. She just keeps knitting and giving, very unselfishly, to Veterans.
Below are the names of the Vets who were lucky enough to receive one of the afghans from her ... She will have a few more to give out soon.
From left to right, the veterans names are: Ed Tryon, Marion MacKinnon, Bill Buttrey, Ben Keating, Gwen Harrison, Jean Walker.
Behind the veterans you will see 4 Legionnaires ..
Comrade Ray Foster, Comrade Bill Beswetherick, Comrade Murray Salter and Comrade Alfie Read.
The Annual Robbie Burns/Roast Beef with a touch of Haggis dinner was a very successful event again this year.
This event was developed a few years ago by Marjory and John Robertson, (true Scots) .... the tartans come out, the singers come out, the crowd comes out to be part of this special function.
The Roast Beef dinner was exceptional thanks to Chef Lori Fletcher and her chefs helpers.
