Meetings are starting up again. Go to a luncheon and meet up with friends. So far the feedback has been positive. Getting out and seeing each other in person has been an uplifting experience.
Not all of the regular luncheons are posted in the newsletter. Check with your luncheon coordinators to find out if your group is starting to meet again.
Our next luncheon meeting will be on Wednesday October 12th at 1:00 pm at Tony Roma's in Londonderry. Any questions, please call me, Elke Carr, at 1-780-912-9242 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Calgary Chapter will resume our monthly luncheons on the second Wednesday of the month at 11:30 am at Legion #264 in Kensington. Our first luncheon will be 12 October 2022.

An Airwomen's luncheon will be held at the Comox Legion (upper hall) on Sunda October 23,2022 from 1-4PM. We invite former military women and those presently serving to join us.

Women in Uniform to meet in Orleans, ON
The first event was held in Orleans before the pandemic. The hope is this will become an annual event.

There were door prizes and everyone. We had an awesome live band that provided great music. Food was provided by our Legion caterer which was also quite tasty.
*If you host a regular luncheon, please contact us let us know where you are. You are not required to publish your information in the newsletter but we can put you in contact with ladies looking for a luncheon group in the area. Thanks so much for participating!*
Pattie Post joined the RCAF in the 50’s her trade was Recreation Specialist. After she left the military she became a police officer and retired as a Superintendent. She attended the second reunion in 1993 held at the University of Carlton in Ottawa. A member remembers her as wonderful pitcher on all ball teams, both military and civilian.
"She was one of the first female windmill pitchers I had ever seen. We met in the Service back in '60 and just kept running into each other after that with ball teams, etc. She was so very funny and obviously very capable.
I lived in Toronto after the Service and we would meet up occasionally and talk about our fun service days when both were airwomen and enjoying life and sports.
I last saw her about 20 years ago when we went to a Blue Jay game together with a couple of other friends, but kept in touch via phone and emails down the road."
As the members of the committee update the nominal roll, we are discovering that some of our members have been with the angels for several years. They are included in our monthly newsletters as we find them.
