Public Relations Report to the General Meeting January 27, 2008

Recent PR activities were:

Ontario Command has chosen The Easter Society as its Charity of Choice, and encourages all members to support this worthy cause. The Annual Easter Seal Telethon will be held on Sunday, April 6th, 2008, and the provincial presentation will be done between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. Any branch members wishing to make a donation can do so to the office, and we will advise command of the amount of donations received.
I received a letter from The Office of Karen Redman, M.P. for Kitchener Centre, inviting all veterans to a luncheon on Friday, February 22, 2008, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The purpose of this luncheon is to remember and thank local veterans who have served our nation. I have made some phone calls to our branch veterans but haven’t as yet reached everyone. Several vets who attended last years’ event, automatically received an invitation this year. The invitation will be posted on the bulletin board following this meeting.
