President Bob Howell and all the Executive wish the membership and the community a Happy Easter and with the holiday we will be closed on Easter Sunday, April 1.

We will be open Good Friday and our Fish and chips will be taking place as per normal. We will be serving from 5-6:30 p.m. and everyone is welcome.

While you have your supper, stick around until 6 p.m. and see if you are the lucky one to have your ticket picked for Catch the Ace as the jackpot has grown to over $15,000. Purchase your ticket at the bar during regular hours and pick your lucky number from the dwindling numbers left. The odds grow better every week. Everyone 18 and over can purchase a ticket.

Mark your calendar for Friday, April 6 as Gordie Meighan will be playing in the downstairs lounge from 6:30-9:30 p.m. Head on downstairs after supper and enjoy some music and unwind after the week. Open to all.

On Sunday, April 22 we will be holding an Honours and Awards afternoon from 1-3 p.m. If you are due for a years of service pin or medal we invite you to drop in and receive it. We will be serving a light lunch so please join us and receive the recognition that you deserve for your service. Bring the family.

We are going to be holding a yard sale soon and are looking for donations that can be used to raise money for the branch. We have a volunteer who will pick up larger items. Items can be dropped at the branch every weekday morning except Tuesday. For larger items call the branch at 613-687-2504 and leave your name, address and what the item is. Thank you for any donations. No clothes please.

Don’t forget soup and sandwich Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Bring your friends.

Join us on the web at or on facebook at Petawawa Royal Canadian Legion Br 517.
