From the Branch – September 13

Sep 13, 2017 @ 08:06
Yes, it is September and we are back at it like they say and our first membership meeting is Thursday 14 September at 7.00 pm so we see you ALL there so we can plan all the events and fundraisers to keep our doors open and serve our veterans and the community.
Yes September is a major month to remember the battles our veterans were involved  with in 1944 like the Operation Market Garden and the battle of Arnhem were our Engineers had to help the British para’s to get back over the Rhine after the fiasco of One bridge to far.
The Battle for the Schelde were where they had to fight in the Flooded polders to their waist in the water. Our forgotten Regiment had to move from Italy to Nijmegen to spend the winter there at the Waal bridge at the front line to get ready for the spring 1945 Operations to liberate the rest of Holland.
Our ladies Auxiliary is starting with their Luncheon on September 28 from 11.30 till 1.00 pm. With BBQ chicken or roast beef on a bun serves  with turkey vegetable soup or bean salad, coffee or tea for only $10.00.
And our new membership cards are at the office so be early bird and get your new card for 2018 NOW.
At the entry exam for medical school entry exam  there were about 60 aspirant doctors.
So the professor said there was only 1 question which would be important for their future.
So he wrote on the blackboard the following   PSEIN and said “ Change those letters into a part of the body which is very important when erect and write this down.”
So then he said   “ Those who wrote down SPINE will be doctors and the rest will be on FACEBOOK.”
To all our Comrades sick at home , in the hospital or nursing homes you are in our thoughts and prayers and we wish you well.
