THE Royal British Legion, Women’s Section Ellon Branch, held their March meeting in the Legion Clubrooms, Lower Victoria Hall on Tuesday, March 5. Mrs Murray welcomed the members, the minutes were read by Mrs S Russell and the financial report given by Mrs P Logan who informed the membership that the annual disbursement for 2012 totalled £4650 all donated to service charities.

The speaker for the evening was Jackie Chambers, who transported the company back to their childhood with her collection of rural items from bygone days.

The competitions for a knitted scarf and a WWI or WWII handmade card to send to a sweetheart was judged with 1st Mrs P Logan and 2nd Mrs M Pacitti for the knitting and Miss M Wood was 1st and 2nd with her card entries.

The welcome cuppa was served, and the raffle drawn, with Mrs Murray drawing the meeting to a close reminding members about the forthcoming Coffee Morning on April 6 in the clubrooms, 10am-11.30am.
