Ladies Auxiliary Report
(Taken from the May 2019 Branch Newsletter)
Spring is here and it's time to roll up our sleeves and start planning a very special year.
We will be celebrating our Ladies Auxiliary’s 90th Anniversary by hosting a Tea in July for all Ladies Auxiliary in District 6 and our Veterans. This tea is by special invitation only.
Our Ladies that are able have been assisting the Branch when asked for different functions such as Malanka and the Easter luncheon for the Veterans.
Selkirk Ladies Auxiliary hosted the district meeting this year and it was well attended by our Ladies.
The craft and bake sale is on June 15th. Lots of baked goodies and Ukrainian specialties. The kitchen will be open and lunch can be purchased.
Our Ladies Night is on September 28th. Please save that date. So much fun to be had. More information on vendors and entertainment will be coming.
All our Ladies are sending hugs and best wishes to all of our members who are not feeling up to par at this time.
We look forward to welcoming new members. Membership is only $15. We meet on the second Wednesday of each month.
Come and join us. Volunteers always appreciated! ??

The Spring Craft and Bake Sale were a great success. Production of our Ukrainian specialties has started for the next sale on September 14th. Summer has been very busy with funerals. We lost three of our very
dear members - Marie Bregman, June Miller and Deanna Wilson. These ladies will be missed by all. Our prayers and condolences to their families.
Our Lady's Auxiliary 90th Anniversary Tea was very well attended. This included all Ladies Auxiliary members from District 6, a few dignitaries and also our veterans. Life Membership awards were given to Sonya Dodd and Pat Thompson. Two Ladies Auxiliary members turned 90 years old - Mary Turkewich and Ann Rogoski.
There was a standing ovation for them and our 96 year old Veteran Walter Scoular. The Tiny Tots of Winnipeg Beach School presented homemade poppies to all the Veterans to show their appreciation for
their service. This was such a big hit. Members of the Gimli Cadets served the food and beverages to all that attended. It was a most enjoyable day for everyone. All of our Ladies Auxiliary members did
a wonderful job putting this event on.
The Ladies Auxiliary participated in the Boardwalk parade and assisted the Branch in serving lunch to all the Shriners and dignitaries that were in the parade.
Ladies Auxiliary donated $1629.00 to the Branch to cover the cost of repairing the cooler in the kitchen.
Our Ladies served lunch to about 90 Canadian Motorcycle Cruiser members. Their bike ride was to raise money for the Children's Wish Foundation. Ladies Night out is on September 28th. Come out and enjoy all the
fun. Tickets are available but limited quantity and they are going fast. Price is $10. Phone Ellie at 389-5969.
We look forward to welcoming new members. We meet on the second Wednesday of each month. Membership is $15.00.
