Here we are in the middle of August. Where did the summer go? By the time you read this column everyone will be getting ready for the children to go back to school.

Here’s a quick reminder that the Greater Petawawa Civitan Club and the Pembroke Civitan Club will be hosting a fishing tournament at the Pembroke Marina on Aug. 17. We invite everyone to come and enjoy a day at the park. Bring the children along with you. We plan to have something for the kids too. We hope to see you all there.

We are still trying to raise money for a wheelchair swing that will be placed at the Civitan Park in Petawawa right by the Civic Centre. We still need to raise about $10.000 so I will be holding bake sales and raffles and asking for donations so we can get this swing set up so those that are in a wheelchair can enjoy some time at the park with the rest of the family. I am asking for your help so Civitan can get this swing. There is a donation bottle at Rona’s in Petawawa or you can donation at our bingo on Sunday night. I would love to take your donations or you can also see Civitan Brian Miner or Chuck Arnold. Just tell them it’s for the wheelchair swing. I will have a bottle at the fishing tournament as well. I want to thank all those that have already donated and bought the goodies we have had for sale at the bingo.

Remember, when you support the Greater Petawawa Civitan Bingo you are helping us to assist people in our community that need our help. If you what to join our great club and be part of a group of people that really care for others and want to help better their lives, then come and join us. We need more volunteers and there is no cost to join us. We just ask for a bit of your time. So come and talk to one of us at the bingo or if you see us some place we are happy to tell you about Civitan.

Thought for the week: Say thanks every day for all you have.

Laughter is the best medicine: A mother said to her son, “If I had a penny for every time I told you not to do that I would be rich.”

“Oh no Mother,” her son said, “you would be poor, because there are no pennies.”

That is all I have for you this week, God bless.
