The President of the Mess Committee
Another training year has begun and Mess activities are in full swing. I have retaken the role as PMC and hope to plan and execute enjoyable events during the upcoming months. We’ll be voting in a new mess committee in the coming weeks, and we’re always looking for help. If you’re interested in volunteering please let us know. Between now and the holidays your Mess Committee will be busy preparing and coordinating these great upcoming events;
CASINO NIGHT HALLOWEEN FUNDRAISER
The Black Watch Women’s Division will be hosting a Casino Night Halloween themed fundraiser on October 19th to raise money for soldier care packages, supporting St-Anne’s Hospital veterans, and the Children’s Christmas party. Tickets are currently being sold for 30$, cost at the door will be 35$. Gifts will be given at the door for those who arrive in costume. Tickets include 5000$ of “play money” and a light buffet will be served. Please contact the Women’s Division, through email or their FB page if interested.
Traditionally held the first week of November, the annual Reunion Dinner is a chance for serving and former serving officers of the mess to gather and reminisce about shared experiences. It will be held on November 2nd this year. An online event invite will be sent out shortly to purchase tickets in advance. Dress will be mess kit or black tie. Purchase your tickets here.
As we normally do to welcome in the Holiday season, we will hold a Sherry Luncheon on the 6th of December. A traditional turkey meal will be served, and sherry offered before and after the meal. This is a chance to welcome guests into the mess and socialize with the serving members. Dress will be business attire.
Enjoy the last of the warm weather and I look forward to seeing you in the Mess.
