Travels of Gerry & Joan

Winter 2010 CSANews Issue 77  |  Posted date : Dec 16, 2010.Back to list

By the time you read this, most of us will be in the sunny south.
What a wonderful summer we had in Canada... We hope it will be just as nice in the great US of A.

In September of 2010, I had the honour of being made a lifetime member of the Ontario Provincial Police Veterans Association.

Joan and I also visited the Sudbury Police Pensioners Association,where I spoke to them about the value of being a member of the CSA.

During the summer, our directors made presentations to many companies and associations regarding the value of their retired employees becoming members of the CSA. If you know of a company that would like a director to speak to their retired employees, please call the CSA office with the details.

Last year, Joan and I sent out more than 92,000 placemats to Canada Clubs in the U.S. This year, we have already started to receive orders again. If you would like to receive these FREE placemats for your event, just give us a call. 

Please only order what you will need for this year, as each year we change the dates of the events advertised.

And remember, if you would like a director to attend and speak at your event all you have to do is ask.

I am looking forward to visiting many Canada Clubs in Florida and speaking about the value of membership in the CSA.

Don't forget, if you sign up five (5) new members, you will receive a free one-year membership.

We hope that you all have a wonderful, healthy and safe winter and look forward to seeing many of you at the Extravaganzas, Winter Information Meetings and the provincial picnics. Don't forget to bring your friends to these events; they are FREE to everyone.

I thought that you may be interested in reading some of the personal ads in Florida newspapers.

Mint condition: male, 1932, high mileage, good condition, has some hair, many new parts including hip, knee, cornea, valves. Isn't in running condition, but walks well.

Long-term commitment: Recent widow who has just buried fourth husband, looking for someone to round out a six-unit plot. Dizziness, shortness of breath, not a problem.

Serenity now: I am into solitude, long walks, sunrises, the ocean, yoga and meditation. If you are the silent type, let's get together, take out our hearing aids and enjoy quiet times.

Winning smile: Active grandmother with original teeth, seeking a dedicated flosser to share steaks, corn on the cob and caramel candy.

The last word: Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, Diet Coke in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO, what a ride!


Have a wonderful day and pay the undertaker with a bad cheque.
