The Black Watch Veteran's Association Live meeting
by Steven Logan
On Thursday December 2nd, I was invited to attend the Black Watch Veteran's Association live meeting. This event was greatly anticipated as since COVID-19 begun, we were doing our meetings through zoom. The current restrictions did allow us to gather at the newly renovated Red Hackle Club at the Black Watch Regiment on Bleury street.
Once I arrived for the 8 pm meeting, I was greeted by many smiles. Many members attended including Black Watch Sergeant Mike Romanaskus who just happened to be in town from Germany. Montreal Branch President Gord Ritchie Gave a good meeting talking about various points such as future events and what is happening with Saint-Anne's veterans hospital.
We learned that they will have a Christmas celebration of some sort but due to rigid restrictions everything is greatly cut down right to having no bagpipers(wind instruments
are not allowed at this time).Fundraising was also discussed with the board asking for ideas. Your Commissioner has many ideas for this but everything in it's time. I was able to pay my dues to the Association for the next year.
To make the event extra special, I brought Logan shortbread cookies that were greatly appreciated as we discussed together afterwards before heading home. This meeting really felt like a party. It was nice to meet up and see our friends and acquaintances. Names were taken for the next event, The men's christmas dinner held on December 18th. I am hoping I can attend and represent Clan Logan, the Black Watch Veteran's Association and the Black Watch Family Division that I am members of. We need to keep our fingers crossed.Many thanks to the Association for such a great live meeting.
Would you have any news to share that would be of interest?
