WOW, I have had a busy weekend.  Let’s start with Friday.
 
I arrived at Robarts Arena around 6:45AM.  What a wonderful sight, veterans everywhere, young, old and in between.  Some in uniform and lots with hats showing their branch of the service.  It was a full house.
 
At our Clubs table we had John Price and his guest, Carolyn her husband Chris, her sister, and brother in law from Canada, Doug, Clark, Brian and me (Joy).  The young lady that sang the National Anthem and God Bless America did a wonderful job.  Our keynote speaker was, Rear Admiral U.S. Navy Retired, Thomas Logan Malone, Ed. D.  He did a very nice job also. 
 
We have a lot of veterans in our Club:  John Price, Royal Air Force from 1942-1946, Al Haab, U.S. Air Force from 1948-1952, John Wilson, Air Force National Guard 1948-1962, Dan Lundy, U.S. Army from 1952-1960, Stewart Horn, National Guard from 1959-1965, Leaf Wanless, U.S. Air Force from 1962-1983, Brian Miller, U.S. Army from 1969-1970, and Bill Irish, U.S. Army from 1970-1973.
 
Please give these men a BIG THANK YOU for all their service.
 
 
Now, let’s move forward to Sunday.  I arrived at Ed Smith Stadium around 11:30AM. What a bunch of people.  I waited for Marianna and Linda and we all went in together.  We were there for the Bowls of Hope. 
 
We got in and there were at least 20 different soups to choose from along with bread and desserts.  We all had different soups and we shared.  I will tell you Calvers has very good ice cream. 
 
We had a good time and the money goes to a good cause.  Thank you Marianna for suggesting we attend.
