Boards elected

Election of officers at the Royal Canadian legion Branch 155 and the Kettle River Arts Club.

Walker re-elected Legion president

Royal Canadian Legion Branch 155, Greenwood, held elections for officers at their meeting last Sunday.

The executive positions were all filled by acclamation: Bob Walker—president, Paul Richards—1st vice-president, John (Jack) Darroch—2nd vice-president, Debbie Black—secretary, and Jennifer Tasker—treasurer.

The executive committee for the coming year will be: Dave Tasker, Solange Jacob, Jacqui Walker, Eileen Ritchey, Della Paradis and Margaret Darroch.

The new officers will be sworn in on Dec. 1 following their regular monthly meeting, which begins at 3 p.m. A potluck will follow.

During the meeting preceding the election, local legion members voted to donate $1,000 to the Tammi Wilson fund and $500 to the residents of Parkview Manor.

 

Turlock named arts club president

The Kettle River Arts Club has recently elected a new slate of directors. Nancy Yamamura is retiring from the executive after many fruitful years of service to the organization.

The new officers are: Jean Turlock—president, Betty-Lou Oswald—vice-president, Joanna Groenendyk—treasurer, and Sharon Cheveldeaw—secretary.

The group meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and one Saturday each month for card making.

Canvas artists are asked to confine their use of oils to the Tuesday sessions, so that crafters who have trouble with the odor of the oils can come and enjoy the space on Thursdays.

“We are open to new members,” said Turlock. “Male or female.”

Membership fees are $30 per year or a $2 daily drop-in fee to get people in the door to see if they’d like to join.

The Kettle River Arts holds a two-day year-end craft show at the end of May and enjoy a group Christmas party each year.

If you would like more information, drop in on a meeting day or phone either Jean Turlock at 250-445-2299 or Betty-Lou Oswald at 250-446-2419.
