Our lives here at 620 CKRM are an open book (generally).
Perhaps you have read between the lines enough to form your own opinion on me and what I do.
I am never at home long enough to commit to having reasonable “downtime”. This week, I started making lists again, just so that I have fully productive days.
They include getting to work, writing a blog and doing other social media posts. Also trying to find interesting ways to frame daily activities.
Yesterday, my afternoon was spent at St. Andrew School with Club du Souvenir and members of the military and navy. We were icing cookies that were supplied by Kim and Ashlee’s Sweet Ambrosia on North Winnipeg Street.
Approximately 25 people icing and decorating Halloween Cookies as part of Operation Sprinkles for the Royal Canadian Legion Veterans that are situated in Regina care facilities. Coming up tomorrow, these cookies will be distributed to the vets.
Last week, I was at Wascana Hospital for the Legion’s Veterans’ luncheon. On a sunny Thursday, there was music and lots of great fellowship with a roast beef meal and the introduction of some of the “super” senior veterans that served this country.
As Remembrance Day approaches, take time to think of the men and women that served in World War I and II plus other conflicts around the globe over the years and currently.
If you ever have the opportunity to do something for our veterans or the community that serves them, please do. It could be visiting a member of the military, shovelling their snow, offering them a ride to an appointment or going for coffee.
The Northgate Mall is set to hold an event for veterans the Saturday before Remembrance Day. The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 001 will no doubt be busy on November 11th and I hope you can attend a memorial service in your community.
Consider taking on a Poppy Box at your business. The money that is gathered from poppies in Saskatchewan, remains in the province. And very exciting news is coming from the Royal Canadian Legion in Regina. Branch 001 at 1820 Cornwall Street is home to a military museum. The committee has been working very hard to bring the museum to life. And I believe it is close!
