Now here is a bit of news from the Greater Petawawa Civitan Club. Our Bingo is going well and we are happy to say we have some new people coming out.

Thank you to everyone who is supporting our 50/50 draw every Sunday night - as you know, all the money from this draw goes towards our wheelchair swing. We now have a little over $12,000, but we still need to raise another $8,000 before the spring so we can have it set up for this summer. We are hoping to have some donation bottles out in different places in the upcoming months. All donations are most appreciated and thank you to everyone, once again, for all your support.

I had a lady tell me she had a wedding last fall and she used our fruit cake. She asked for more cake and I was happy to get it for her, another wedding coming up.

For those who want more fruit cake, I still have some. The cost is $12 a box of three or $5 each.

Did you miss the bingo on Sunday, January 26? We are happy to say we had a very lucky winner on the 52 Special.

At this time I would like to thank the ladies who have donated the baby blankets and Afghans for our fundraisers over the past months. They are seniors who wanted to help raise the money for the wheelchair swing. THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN!

If you are new to Petawawa or area and would like to find out more about what the Greater Petawawa Civitan Club is doing for our community, come to one of our meetings held on the second Wednesday night of the month at the Petawawa Civic Centre. We are upstairs and the time is 7 p.m. You may call John VandenBaar, our President, at 613-717-5674, Marie Arnold at 613-687- 8463, Brian Miner at 613-687-4503, or Darlene Lambert at 613-735-6069 if you would like to let us know that you would like to come to our meeting. That is the best way to find out about Civitan.

Well I hope to see you all once again at our Sunday night Bingo. Remember: when you support the Greater Petawawa Civitan Bingo you are helping us to help those who need it.

As I have said before, I would like about six feet of snow - well I may get it! So please drive carefully.
That is all I have for you this week, God Bless.

Thought for the week: Please and thank you will get you mostly everything.
