3rd Annual Jeff Lacombe Dart Tourney A Success
Sunday, Nov. 13th was the first dart tournament of the dart season, the 3rd Annual Jeff LaCombe Memorial Tourney. The 80 players who took part raised $746 for the hampers. Beth Phillips and Chris Swoffer of the Colborne Legion Dart League organized the event.
Jeff was a dart player who died suddenly. The tournament is played each year to raise funds to support the Christmas Hamper program. Members of Jeff’s family were in attendance at the tournament.
Remembrance Day 2016
There was a great showing at the cenotaph by members of the community attending the service. The sunshine sure didn’t hurt.
A big thank you to all who took part in the parade including; the Air Force City Pipe Band, the members of the 429 Squadron, the Fire Department, Masonic Lodge, the Lions, the cadets and students from Colborne Public School.
Our thanks and respects to Lt.-Col Scott Mutton & Comrade Don Prentice for taking the salute as we passed in review.
A special shoutout to little Jack Barber who stood beside his dad saluting us as we paraded to the cenotaph.
