For those who haven't made it to Breakfast at "True North" in Bedford this winter, there were many members took advantage of the opportunity to get to know each other outside of the club. Here are a few pics to show you what you might have been missing! See you on the greens ...
We had another great turnout for Sunday Brunch last month, and it was great to see so many members! There is no brunch planned for this month (November) but we will continue meeting on the LAST SUNDAY OF EVERY MONTH starting in January. Our next brunch will be JANUARY 26 at 12:30 pm. Several members have asked if we could have brunch at a different location and I am thinking of the Sunnyside Restaurant (formerly Smitty’s) next time. Any comments or objections?
CHRISTMAS PARTY – SUNDAY DECEMBER 8, 2013 – 2 – 4 pm
Are you ready for our annual Christmas Party? Your social committee, under Chairman Howard Oakey with Henry and Jean Ellsworth, Cecile McEachern and Patricia Hawco are planning a fun afternoon with punch and snacks and of course, the YANKEE GIFT EXCHANGE. Snacks and punch will be available as well as coffee and sweets. Family and guests are welcome but they must bring a gift if they wish to participate in the gift exchange. Suggested limit for each gift is $10.00.
FOUR DOOR PRIZES! The main door prize will be won through a "Chase the Ace" game. This will be a gift basket (approximate value $30). The other three door prizes will be won by a draw of a name or number from a hat.
Members are invited to bring a sampling of their favourite Christmas cookies to share, no need to go overboard, just enough so that people can have a taste of your Christmas favorite (perhaps a copy of your recipe as well????)

An email from Keith about winter indoor lawn bowling .........
Volunteers are unpaid,
not because they are worthless…
…because they are priceless!
The secret to making any club a success comes down to each individual club member's willingness to volunteer their time and efforts for the smooth running of the club activities and functions. REMEMBER we need you - to help set up and provide what is necessary for all events to take place. Your efforts will be greatly appreciated and will be what makes our club a success and an attraction for others!
