Sep 19 meeting ...Dr. Mark Ujjainawalla indicated that 10% of the population have a problem with alcohol and that 50% of all hospital admissions are alcohol-related. Alcohol is a major treatable problem that causes undue stress on families, business, hospitals, the legal system and the environment. What he stressed is that we stop stereotyping the individuals with this problem and do our best to get passed our own judging. They need our help more than anything and with our support and our acceptance, they can come to terms with their problem and stop the DENIAL.

Congratulations ....... to Ross McHardy who received President Ron’s weekly Rose for his personal dedication and the efforts he has given to our club since 1989. ......to Keith McGruer and Bob Vergette who each won the raffle of two tickets to the spectacular STOMP at the National Arts Centre, donated by Earl Crowe, and to Stan Greenwood who won the two framed pressed flower arrangements homemade and donated by Con Stoltz. Thank you both for donating, $188.00 was raised for our General Account. .... to those who received their 100% Attendance Tabs for 12 months of Perfect Attendance: 3 years - Major Cliff Hollman and Barb Perrin and 4 years - Ross McHardy.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The only thing wrong with doing nothing, is you never know when you are finished.
