News - Executive - 28 Jan 2008

News Item 5 of 22 

Executive: 28 Jan 2008
Public Relations Report to the General Meeting January 27, 2008

Branch 50’s web-site continues to be popular and now features a member opinion section. Our current survey is asking member’s opinions about The Dugout Newsletter. This survey will be open until January 31st, 2008.

In 2008, Public Relations & Membership Committees will be working together to recruit new members and encourage non-renewals to become active members again. Get your friends, neighbours and family to attend a branch function. You never know, they may just want to join!
Recent PR activities were:

• December 12, 2007 cheque presentation to the Army Cadets
• January 9, 2008 CKCO-TV interviewed several of Branch 50’s veterans
• January, 2008 executive meeting approved a $2,000 donation to the Salvation Army but unfortunately, we were not able to arrange a media presentation of the cheque.

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.

Gloria McKibbin, PRO
