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

We are still looking for volunteers for the Greater Petawawa Civitan Club and I would love to have you come and join me and all the other members of our GREAT club. Why not give me a call at 613-687-8463, or call Brian at 613-687-4503 or one of our Greater Petawawa Civitan Club members just talk to them. They will be happy to provide all the information about our club to you.

Here are just a few places and things the Greater Petawawa Civitan Club supports: the food banks in Petawawa, Pembroke and Deep Diver; the hospital in Deep River, Pembroke, and the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario in Ottawa; as well as Carefor Health & Community Services in Pembroke. There so many other things we also help with - children are very important to us and their wellbeing is so important to everyone. But just as I have said many times, we need volunteers, and no, there is no cost to join our club, just a bit of your time.

Now just when you thought that everything was going well and we would we getting back to normal, up comes a new wave of COVID-19. We are sorry to say that we still are unable to hold our Sunday-night Bingos, and I hope that we will soon be able open back up again. This has been a very long year for us and there are few ways we are able to raise funds. Thanks once again to Rona Petawawa for having a bottle setup to help raise the money we need for the wheelchair swing. The Civitan members really appreciate their support in this endeavour.

I know that it is a bit early but we would like to inform everyone that we will have our Christmas cakes for sale once again. I will let you know where you will be able to get them in the next few weeks.

That’s all for now, take care and God bless you all and hope to see you again in October.

Thought: Keep smiling and say I can get through this with God’s help.
