President, Patricia Belfry

This Friday’s Social—there will be a large wedding in the Club. We apologize in advance to all members for the inconvenience. As you know, we try to keep Fridays clear for members, but sometimes this happens, particularly this time of year. Members can, of course, enjoy the taproom at any time, but the Snug may be the best place to be.

Summary of last April’s Bridge Fundraiser: At the AGM it was mentioned that the  financial statements did not include a copy of the results of the Bridge Fundraiser held on April 8th. Net proceeds raised were a very much appreciated $1,002, and a copy of the full report will be included in the red Executive Minutes binder available in the bar.

And About Saturday’s Bridge Fundraiser: We’re pleased to report this event is sold out, and many volunteers are providing sandwiches and sweets. Great work, everyone, thank you!

Sweets needed for the New Years Levee: The Haviland Club’s New Years Levee will go all out again this year, with the famous Moose Milk and sweets for the hundreds of expected guests. If you are able to prepare or purchase a plate or tray of sweets to contribute to the effort it would be most appreciated. And if you would like to help serve, clean up or provide tours to those who would like them, that would be welcome, too. Please let Tricia know.

Saturday’s ‘Saturday Afternoon at the Races’ was a great success. There were no big winners or losers, except perhaps for those (no names, please) who made the odd Triactor bet and didn’t account for that sneaky number three horse coming in second again and again… So much fun was had, we plan to do it again in December.

Coming Activities:

Tonight, Tuesday November 21, 7 PM – Book Club

Salman Rushdie is on offering for the Book Club this month, with The Golden House. For December the club will read Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders, followed by Angie Thomas’s The Hate U Give in January. 

Wednesday, November 22 – Paint and Pour, 7 PM

The HAVILAND CLUB NEWSLETTER

November 14, 2017

The Haviland Club Annual General Meeting is tomorrow, Wednesday at 7 PM in the great room. Come hear how your Club performed in the last year.

Our Apologies for how busy the Club was last Friday evening. This wasn’t expected: the Club hosted a celebration of life, which was supposed to be in the great room only but spilled over into the lounge due to the number of people who came. Thank goodness we now have the Snug, where members can gather—as well, of course, in the taproom. Kudos to Allan and Jeannette for coming up with the Snug idea last year.

Coming Activities:
Wednesday, The Haviland Club Annual General Meeting, 7 PM
Just in case you missed the note above :).

Thursday Morning Coffee Club, 9:30 to 11:30 in the Lounge
Last week Bert shared photographs he’s unearthed of Esther Lowden’s daughter and her husband. A picture of Esther still eludes us, but Bert is working on it. Hank discussed plans for a February show at the Club. Come and share. Free snacks, cheap coffee and tea, good fun.

Friday November 10 – Friday Social. Bar opens at 4, Draws at 6.
Come out for happy hour and free munchies. Come or be missed!

Saturday, November 18 – Saturday Afternoon at the Races, 1:30 PM
Hank Stinson is hosting and arranging this new Club event, Saturday Afternoon at the Races. The plan is simple: we meet at the track before race time, for each race we each throw a toonie in a hat and draw a number, and the person with the winning number wins the pot. Meantime we laugh and tell jokes and lies and have a good time. Some are having lunch (at noon) while others may arrive for race time at 1:30. If interested, please just hit reply to this Newsletter in your emails and let us know, as we do need to know how many are coming.

Tuesday November 21, 7 PM – Book Club
Salman Rushdie’s The Golden House will be discussed by the Book Club this month. For December the club will read Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders, followed by Angie Thomas’s The Hate U Give in January.

HAVILAND NEWSLETTER ~ AUGUST 24, 2015

 

Hello Members

Just a quick not to let you all know what is happening at the Haviland in the coming weeks.

September 5:

Haviland Club Golf Tournament

Your organizer is Ray: $40 for golf and cart if you only want to play golf, $15 for steak dinner if your interested in dinner only or $55.00 for both.  Golf is being played at Belvedere Golf Course beginning at 1:15. Maximum of 13 teams team, 4 per team. Sign up sheet is on the bulletin board in the bar.  Each member on the team can invite 1 non-member guest to play golf/dinner. Steak dinner will be served at the Haviland Club anywhere between 5-6pm.   Anyone who is looking at having a strip loin dinner, must pay the club their $15.00 prior to.   Cut off date is Sept. 2.

A big THANK YOU to Trish for volunteering to cook the steaks.  Can’t wait to taste it!!  Thanks to Barb for offering to help out in the kitchen and serve..

Volunteers are needed in the kitchen to help cook or serve.  If anyone can rummage up some donated prizes, Ray would be very appreciative.

The Member Social sign up sheet for meals starting September 4, 2015. If anyone wishes to dust off their culinary skills, just sign up, what your serving and the cost: $5.00 / $8.00 / $10.00. The meal you serve should match up with the cost to prepare.

SEPTEMBER 4 ~ Member Social

Now that summer is winding down, and routines are beginning to be established again, we are having our 1st Member Social on Sept 4.   Scott and Scotty are improving their culinary skills since their fishing trip and are serving up cheeseburgers/nacho chips/dessert, all for the rock bottom price of $5.00.  Can’t beat that!!   We are starting back to our regular routines here at the club also.

SEPTEMBER 22 ~ Book Club

Is re-commencing on Sept 22 in the Historic Room at 7 pm.  The books for September’s read are by Kate Atkinson: A God in Ruins, and if your time permits Life After Life.   From October onward, the Book Club will meet every month on the 3rd Tuesday with a new book announced immediately after the previous meeting.   Hope to see everyone back involved and bring a friend!

Thank you to the 41 Members that have already paid their dues!! Early payment of your membership fees is greatly appreciated. It’s really making a difference.  Your names will go into a draw for prizes that will be drawn for on our Harvest Feast Dinner on October 9. Price and tickets will be available soon. Maximum of 50 people will be served.

We now have various methods of payment here at the Club..  We have:

Credit card, Debit, Cash, Cheque, Paypal and e-transfer to make paying your membership or any events more convenient.

Just to let you know…. The harvest dinner will be a squash soup to begin with, pork loin, harvest vegetables as your entrée, and apple crisp with ice cream for dessert..   Price for dinner will be out soon.

We advertised for a new Haviland Club Host / Hostess. Interviews will be held next week so the new person can start in September (sometime!!).

I received the following email from Louise Lalonde to have it circulate to our membership:  see email in italic.

I’m looking for a few men and women who would have stories to tell as part of a group in front of a camera about their wartime memories to do with food during the war.  Some things are well documented such as rationing and victory gardens but what I’m looking for is personal stories about women who became farmers and the sacrifices people made for the war effort.  What it was like on a farm and what it was like in the city.  Heartwarming and funny stories that took place on the home front would be best.   The title of the documentary is Food for Victory and will be used as an educational resource for high school students with the assistance of Canadian Heritage. 

The time commitment would be a couple of hours on a day to be determined and I’m hoping I can rent a room at the Haviland Club to do it.   Thank you for sharing, Louise. 

Here is something else that may interest members is a “Share Club”.  The objective of the club is education and fun – where a group of people gather regularly to share information about their investment experiences and perspectives.  Club members make their own investments.  There are no minutes & members are NOT expected to share personal information unless they chose to. Members of the “Share Club” will determine their interest, needs and common goals.   If there is any interest please contact  Frank at frankpeicananda@gmail.com

I want to personally thank Norma Lee for the beautiful mirror that she brought into the club.  It is located in the has loaned us on a long-term basis her needlepoint and is proudly hung in the Great Room.

If anyone else is looking to declutter items that are is good condition and would suit the heritage of the Club, we are always pleased to take things off your hands.

BAR HOURS ~ now that fall is arriving it’s nice to get back into a routine.

Monday & Wednesday: Bar will open at 4:30 -7:30  If no-one attends the club, we will close earlier.

Tuesday & Thursday:  Bar will open at 4:30 – 11:00.  The bartender will be one of the bridge players

Friday:  Will remain the same  4:00 to 11:00 (pending  the members at the club or if there is a function)

Saturday: 6:30: – 9:30… (The hours will depend on members at the bar or if there is a function)

This may fluctuate a bit, but you will be updated of any changes.. To start the season off, this is what it will be.

That’s it for now.. See you at your Club.
