Christmas Proposal

We, the Executive brought a proposal at our September General Meeting to do away with children’s’ gifts for the Christmas party and supply each member with a turkey or ham. We would still have the Christmas Party where the children can play and have entertainment; however they would not receive a gift. All members that attend the Christmas party would receive either a turkey or a ham.


We would like to know from our members what they would like:

1) To continue giving the children gifts

2) To give each member either a turkey or ham who attend the Christmas party.


Please fax your preference to our office at 204-667-8731 or email to local110@mymts.net by October 17, 2014
