Thank you to the members of the 756 Air Cadets, who were on hand to serve the meal. They did an awesome job, not one broken dish. We would also like to thank the gentlemen from the branch who helped our ladies in the kitchen: Comrades Joe Keating, Dave St. Dennis, Dave Clarke, and "Whitey" Engleby. A job well done and Comrade Engleby has the cleanest hands in all of Georgetown. On September 23rd, seven teams from Georgetown went to Erin to play euchre. It was a long day, but Georgetown did finish in a threeway tie for first place. Congratulations to Flo Carswell and Marg Stronziwilk. Judy Oerlemans and Eleanor Hurren were tied for second, along with Acton and Brampton. Winners of the Erin Draw Gerda Stefan and Judy Oerlemans.
