Well now for just a bit of news from the Greater Petawawa Civitan Club. We are happy to once again see some new faces at our Bingo on Sunday night.

On Sunday, June 12 Civitan Marie Arnold held a raffle for a lovely basket of goodies and a lovely afghan blanket. There were two lucky winners. The money from this fundraiser and others that Civitan Marie will hold this year will go to the War Horse Hope Reins Project to support our horse, Maggie. Remember when you support the Greater Petawawa Civitan Bingo you are helping us support those who need our help.

This year, we will be supporting our members of our Canadian Armed Forces to say thanks for all that they have done for our country.

No, we will not forget those we have supported over the years. The more you support the Greater Petawawa Civitan Club, the more we can support others.

Oh yes, if you would like to donate a little bit of your time to help us, come and talk to us at bingo or if you see one of us out and about. We love to tell you about Civitan and what we do and have done and are planning on doing.

We are starting a Horseshoe Club and if you would like to play horse shoes, come see us on Wednesday night at the Civic Centre Park at 6:30 p.m. Civitan John VandenBaar is looking after this event and you can reach him at 613-717-5674 for more information, everyone welcome. Well, that is all I have for this week, hope to see you at our Sunday night Bingo and on Wednesday night at horseshoes. Come and have some fun.

Have a good week and keep safe.

Thought for the week: No one is perfect we all make mistakes at one time or the other.

Laughter is the Best Medicine: Grandma was sick so she said that little Johnny could go to church with his Grandfather. When they came home from Church Grandma ask John how he liked church.” OK”, Then John told her that Grandpa said that if the preacher didn’t know what to do with his hands he should have put them over his mouth. Out of the mouth of a Child.

That’s all for this week, God Bless.
