Hello once again! Well here I am with just a bit of news from our Greater Petawawa Civitan Club.

As you may have guessed we still are unable to hold our Sunday night Bingos due to COVID-19. It has been a long year for many of us and there’s very few ways we are able to raise funds. I do have to say thanks to Rona in Petawawa for allowing us to have a bottle set up to help raise the money we need for the wheelchair swing. The Civitan members really appreciate your support in this endeavour as we are small group of people working hard so that we are able to help those who are in need.

As stated in my last newsletter, we are planning a Fishing Tournament in August and a dance in September. These are the two biggest events that we are able to hold at this time, we just hope that everyone keeps safe and wears a mask.

We are also hoping to hold a yard sale, and I would like to have some people to do a walkathon this year to help raise funds. I am going to look in to this event and set up a date and time, so I will inform you later on. If you are interested in this event, you can let me know. My phone number is 613-687-8463. I could also use some help.

Now just a reminder to all you fisher men and women, get you friend or partner and sign up for a fun day of fishing. Yes, it is the Battle of the Bass and this event will take place at the Pembroke Marina on August 14, 2021. If you would like more information please call Civitan John VandenBarr at 613-717-5674 or Civitan Allen Stewart at 613-735-3791. They will be very happy to help you and give you all the information that you need. The most important thing will be you must wear your mask.

Please wear your mask when you are out and about as it is so sad that we have had more break-outs in the last few weeks, just when we thought things were getting better. So please, please, wear your mask.

That’s all for now, take care and God bless you all.

Just a Thought: Just ask yourself, why am I complaining when I have all I really need? Does someone else need a helping hand?
