The Canadian Club of Morrisburg and District now has an evenly split year thanks to a 2012 directors decision to have the usual three meetings in the fall and add a meeting in March, to the existing meetings in April and May.
And so, for those of us who don’t go south, we can look forward to being entertained at the upcoming March meeting on Wednesday, March 19.
In March, we will enjoy a roast pork dinner and then Rev. Dan Hayward will help shorten the winter we have experienced. The United Church of South Stormont is where Rev Hayward ministers now. He will explore the Comedian’s Craft – Behind the Scenes. His presentation will be light-hearted, insightful and tasteful – and we look forward to seeing you there.
In April, Ron Bennet, president of the Federation of Agriculture, will look at Canadian agriculture’s contribution to our economy and the World. As usual, we will have a draw for a 3’ x 6’ Canadian Flag–compliments of our local MP Guy Lauzon. The Legion Branch 48 auxiliary ladies will serve a turkey dinner.
Prime rib will be on the menu in May.
Our final speaker for the year will be a representative of the Area Crime Prevention program from the SD&G OPP Detachment in Long Sault speaking to the club on Identity Theft, Fraud and Protecting Personal Information.
Typically, the Canadian Club also has the winner of the Dundas County Public speaking contest speak to us. The winner will be known in mid April.
