PRESIDENT'S REPORT
January was a cold and busy month, many days I wished that I could have stayed inside, curled up
with a good book and a glass of wine.
We had two birthday parties in the Lounge in January, Peggy Galbraith and John Rollings, celebrating that big milestone of 90. All the very best to you both.
Mark your calendars for these upcoming events - Super Bowl Feb. 1st looking forward to some of
Bob's Great Wings. Ladies Auxiliary Lunches will be February 6th and 20th. We are going to try
something different for our Valentines Dance, Yolande has booked a Band "Cowboys Don't Cry" so
we will hold the dance in the Auditorium and it will be Open to the Public, so come out bring your
friends and neighbours.
February 15th is the 50th Birthday of the Canadian Flag, so we will have entertainment by Bill Dickenson in the Lounge with snacks and birthday cake from 1 - 5 pm and upstairs at 5:30 pm is the Ladies Auxiliary Roast Beef Dinner. Ladies Night will be February 17th and tickets are at the Bar for
$6.ea.General Meeting Feb.19th at 7:30 pm.
I would like to thank those members that stepped up to the plate at January's General Meeting, we
were short a few officers for various reasons, but all went well. We had eleven new members initiated in January, I would like to welcome them and hope they enjoy being a member of branch 133.
I still have a few tickets left for the Murder Mystery Dinner on March 14th for those that have already booked their table please make sure that you pay & pick up your tickets before 7 pm on the
20th February. Any member that would like to donate an item for the silent auction can call me at
289-251-3478. There is a painting set up in the club room that was donated by member Sam
Warnock, we are already taking bids and will finish it at the Dinner.
I will be on vacation from February 24th until March 6th heading to Myrtle Beach, even though I
don't play golf anymore I'm sure I can handle a couple of rounds of Mini Golf, looking forward to
some rest and relaxation.
Take Care of Yourself and your family,
Respectfully Submitted
Josephine

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.

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.
Respectfully,
John Aitken

Toronto Banking
Smile for the Day
You gotta love those Newfies (read to the end)
A gentleman originally from Newfoundland walked into a Toronto bank and asked for the Loans Officer. 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.

to accept conditions as they exist, or

COBOURG LEGION PIPES AND DRUMS
FEBRUARY 2015 REPORT
November 2014 was one of the busiest months to date for the Cobourg Legion Pipes and Drums. 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.

FEBRUARY 2015 REPORT
The Annual General Meeting of the Cobourg Legion Pipes and Drums was held following band practice
on Tuesday, January 20. 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.
