Come in and have dinner, join in for our 3 meat draws and our 50/50 draw starting at 5:30 p.m. each Friday and Saturday evening. The regular meat draws are valued at bout $50.00 – $60.00 0f good quality cuts. We even have a “Losers” Meat Draw where ALL the tickets go back in the drum again! But the meat doesn’t have quite the same value as the regular draws!

Every Thursday afternoon we have a seniors jam session from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm.

Every day we host a “Loonie” and 25c “Lucky” draw for members of 238 in good standing. These draws happen at 6:00 pm.

If the loonie pot reaches a maximum of $1,500.00 then a second pot is started, so while we’re waiting for the $1,500.00 pot to be won our second pot is building you must be here, have paid your loonie, printed your name and signed the draw book to win. Members win 75% of the Loonie Pot with 25% going to donations.

For the “Lucky” quarter draw the entire amount collected goes back as the prize. Come in anytime during the day to pay your quarter and sign the book, you do not have to be in the branch when that draw is made. One weekend before the Easter and Thanksgiving weekends our meat draws are for turkeys and hams. That means April 7th/8th for Easter 2017 and September 30th/October 1st for Thanksgiving 2017
