Missile February 2015 6 THE MISSILE FEBRUARY 2015 MEMBERSHIP REPORT Well by the 1st February we will have reached the cut off date where you can call yourself an up to date member. If you were a member in 2014 and you have not paid your dues for 2015, then you will have to sign in as a guest and you will not be able to purchase liquor. On 1st February, the bar staff will be asking all members attending the bar to produce their membership card in order to make a purchase. If you are known to have been a member the year previous you will be denied purchase. I am aware that approximately two hundred members have not as yet renewed their membership. Command will be cancelling your subscription to the Legion Magazine and it will not be delivered until your membership is paid. Please remember on 1st February, dues will increase to $60.00 for all late paying members. For all members waiting for membership cards, Command is running about two months behind at the present time and I can only forward cards once I receive them so please be patient. 1st VICE PRESIDENTS REPORT I have not been particularly busy this past month. The roof at 173 Hibernia needs to be fixed, high winds having caused a small amount of damage to the roof and shingles. Hopefully by the time you read this report repairs will have been completed. I did attend Comrade Bill Smiths Celebration of Life at the Legion and this was very well attended by a large number of comrades. Don Ashfield 1st Vice President/Membership Chairman.

It was played over 8 million times! 7 The Royal Canadian Legion Dominion Command Message Page 2 of 2 cont’d Missile February 2015 8 Veterans Service Officer’s Report As of 1st of June , 2015, I will no longer be the Veterans Service Officer for Branch 133. After over 6 years of serving veterans, their wives, widows and families, I have decided to pass on the torch to some one new. This person does not need to be a veteran but because that person will be signing cheques and in some cases, accessing confidential financial information on clients, this person will have a mandatory Police Check (mandated by Ontario Command) paid for by the Branch. They must also be able to speak in a knowledgeable manner with people from the VA and Ontario Command. I have given 6 months notice so that if some one wishes to volunteer, there will be lots of time to train and mentor the new Service Officer. This position is an appointed position and NOT ELECTED. Please contact me or the Branch if you wish to volunteer. I would like to say that it HAS BEEN AN HONOUR to serve the veterans, wives, and widows from inside and outside this area. I think it is time to look at other interests within the Legion.

He told the Loans Officer that he was going to Newfoundland on business for two weeks and needed to borrow $5,000. However, as he was not a depositor of the bank, the Bank Officer told him the bank would require some form of security for the loan. So the Newfie handed over the keys to a new Ferrari. The car was parked on the street in front of the bank. The Newfie produced the title and everything checked out. The Loans Officer agreed to hold the car as collateral for the loan and apologized for having to charge 12% interest. Later, the Bank's President and Officers all enjoyed a good laugh at the Newfie for using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral for a $5,000 loan. An employee of the Bank then drove the Ferrari into the Bank's underground garage and parked it. Two weeks later, the Newfie returned, repaid the $5,000 and the interest of $23.07. The Loan Officer said, "Sir, we are very happy to have had your business and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a multimillionaire. What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow $5,000?" The Newfie replied: "Where else in Toronto can I park my car for two weeks for only $23.07 and expect it to be there when I return?" Ah, Newfies...... See! Salt Beef is good for the brain.

This probably accounts for the absence of a report to "Missile" readers in last month's newsletter, there being a need to warm up, thaw out and draw deeper breath afterwards, a little recuperation before the Christmas season started. By way of review, the band participated in two Remembrance Day Services, the first at Alderville on the Sunday, November 9. November 11 saw the band accompany Legion members to the Cobourg cenotaph for one of the largest, and warmest, Remembrance Day Services in memory. Following the band's tradition of carrying the message of recognition and remembrance to a wider, school-aged audience, we visited four area schools, in Cobourg, Baltimore and Port Hope. Of all that the band does, these are the most important and the most devoutly attended to; they are also the most evident sign that the message is getting through and being appreciated. The band shared its music with members at the traditional Legion start to the New Year when they performed upstairs and downstairs for the Levee on January 1. As the band has increased in size over the last year, it was not only noticeably louder but noticeably constrained in its floor routines. Not much room for tricky counter-marches or arabesques, but we did manage to stay together for tunes. The balance of the month has been taken up with preparation and practice for the Robbie Burns evening, held this year in partnership with the Cobourg Highland Games Society. This most traditional of Scottish celebrations has expanded, not only the organization but the components of such an evening, this year consisting of a delicious Legion dinner, haggis included, as well as performances by the Pipes and Drums and the Macklin Academy of Dance, a silent auction, and our always eagerly anticipated Open-mic Ceilidh. The ceilidh will be hosted again this year by Stefan and Saskia, two local and very talented Celtic performers. It promises to be an exciting evening, with lots of Celtic activity and something for everyone, whether on the stage, the dance floor or the auction table. Tickets are $40 for the entire evening, proceeds to be shared by the Cobourg Legion Pipes and Drums and the Cobourg Highland Games Society. The Robbie Burns Dinner is only the latest effort by the band to raise money for their upcoming East Coast Odyssey Tour of 2015. By now readers will know that the band is planning and preparing for a 10 day visit to New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island in July of this year. It will be an opportunity to share with, and learn from, a number of area pipe bands, in parades, highland games and "jam sessions", as well as attend the highly regarded College of Piping for two days of instruction in piping and drumming. A comprehensive schedule has been created by band member and travel coordinator Joanne Drury, aided by many other band members, involving band connections, accommodations, travel arrangements, and dozens of other details. These, however, have been preceded by a year of fund raising activities, many of which have received the support of the Cobourg Legion members. In the months to follow, we will continue to offer enjoyable opportunities (yard sale, ceilidh, etc.) with which to help support our band undertaking. One to look for in February is the first-ever Pipe-O-Gram, a Valentine's Day initiative. Hire a pair of pipe band members and they will deliver to your loved one a uniquely CLP&D Valentine's Day gift of two pipe tunes of your choosing and a card. See Mary Ito or Joanne Drury for this $25 special. March's big gig will be the first ever CLP&D appearance in the Toronto St. Patrick's Day Parade, on March 15. We are already working on a number of Irish sets, the better to blend in, but be assured that, with proper marathon training, and lots of rest beforehand, we will represent Cobourg, and the Legion, well throughout the entire 4km parade route.

The year past was reviewed, the upcoming year discussed and other orders and bits of band business were taken care of. The growth of the band, in terms of membership and music, both learned and shared, was highlighted, as was the recognition of our changing profile. As we continue to be an active and participatory part of the community, we see our capacity as ambassadors growing in importance. We recognize, and greatly appreciate, the important roles in this process played by Pipe Major Mary Ito, Pipe Sergeant Mark Gordon, Drum Sergeant Mark Diminie, and by Band President Brent Sanderson. We have a dedicated Drum Major now, Steve Shortt, and he must be thanked for keeping us in line, literally, as we parade the highways and byways of the province. He has also volunteered for the additional responsibilities of Quarter Master, a job recently resigned by Danny Lee. Our considerable thanks to Danny for his commitment to this job for several years, and for keeping everyone well kitted out. Everyone contributes to the success of the band but we must all be encouraged and lead, and these we are very well. Recognition must also be given to the constant support and encouragement provided by our sponsors, the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 133.

A teenage boy had just passed his driving test and inquired of ~Martin Luther father said he'd make a deal with his son, "You bring your his father as to when they could discuss his use of the car. His grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible a little, and get your hair cut. Then we'll talk about the car. "The boy thought about that for a moment, decided he'd settle for the offer, and they agreed on it. After about six weeks his father said, "Son, you've brought your grades up and I've observed that you have been studying your Bible, but I'm disappointed you haven't had Legion Medal Cleaning Earl Hewison 195 Riverdale Parkway Frankford, Ont. 1-613-398-6793 Missile February 2015 your hair cut. "The boy said, "You know, Dad, I've been thinking about that and I've noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair. Moses had long hair, and there's even strong evidence that Jesus had long hair." (You're going to love the Dad's reply) "Did you also notice they all walked everywhere they went?"
