NEW BUSINESS:

Johnson’s Insurance is offering a scholarship program to “recognized groups,” of which the Heritage Club is one. So, paid up membership would qualify, members, children, and grandchildren, if they meet the eligibility requirements. Please see attached.

Adrian Angel will again coordinate volunteers for this year’s Janeway Telethon which is being held Saturday and Sunday June 3rd and 4th. Volunteers will be needed for June 4th from 9:00am to 7:00pm at the Imperial Oil Building on Elizabeth Ave.
If you are interested in helping out for an hour or so in this worthwhile venture, please give Adrian a call at 753-6981.

President Howlett is again asking members who have not yet done so to please submit their e-mail addresses to the Club as this would be a quick and easy method to alert the membership of upcoming meetings and other events that the Club is involved in.

Our next meeting will be our year-end BBQ Meeting to be held at the Legion, Blackmarsh Rd. on Tuesday, May 23rd, This will also be an Election of Officers for the 25 Year Club executive. Also anyone interested in running for office or to nominate someone may do so at or any time before the meeting. We will need a new Treasurer as Marilyn Daly will be retiring, so please give that some thought.

If you are planning to attend the BBQ meeting to be held on Tuesday May 23rd, please let us know of you intention and your choice of meal of either steak or chicken by no later than May 18th.

The cost to members is $15.00 and anyone wishing to pay dues are welcome to do so at the meeting.
