Lion’s Head Legion Br 202, Co-Secretary
The Lion’s Head Legion held a Valentine’s Dinner which included homemade cabbage rolls thanks to the organizers and hosts, Wayne and Barb Morningstar. The tickets for the dinner sold out very quickly and the weather co-operated. There are many Legion Branch members to thank for their help including the six servers, Donald Colter, George Bowman, Rick Nolk, Fred Van Tooren, Rick Witherspoon and Kim White. Rick Witherspoon also greeted everyone at the door. There were many helping hands in the kitchen including Wayne and Barb Morningstar, Susan and Dave Uren, Pat Witherspoon and dishwasher helpers Kim White and Rick Nolk.
A special thank you is also sent to Sue Halliday for printing the tickets and the ticket sellers, Fred and Jean Van Tooren, Wayne and Barb Morningstar and Don and Sharron Colter.
