The April 2017 issue of The Southern Yarn is here for your reading. We mark the 100th anniversary of Vimy Ridge, along with the 150th year of Canada. Lots of news items for everyone.
Note: [April 25] Some important location changes for the passports appointments and the alumni event. Read the bottom of page one.
If you are a dual Canadian citizen used to travelling to or transiting through Canada by air with a non-Canadian passport, you will no longer be able to do so as of November 10, 2016. You will need a valid Canadian passport to board your flight.
If your country needs you to enter and exit that country using a passport issued by its government, you will still need a valid Canadian passport to board your flight to Canada. Make sure to carry both passports when you travel.
Exception: If you are an American-Canadian dual citizen with a valid U.S. passport, you don’t need a Canadian passport to fly to Canada. However, you will still need to carry proper identification and meet the basic requirements to enter Canada.

The outgoing executive for 2016. Thank you all for your work in the past 12 months.
Join us on Friday November 25 from 7:00 pm until 10:00 pm at the Scandinavian Cultural Centre, 764 Erin Street in Winnipeg.
We will be holding our Club elections and updating everyone on events and activities in 2016 and 2017.
Consider taking a turn on the executive – all positions are up for grabs – or just turn up and lend your support to those who keep the cogs turning. This is a great forum for raising suggestions for Club events or to catch up with your mates.
The bar will be open and snacks will be supplied.
NOTE: You need to be a member in good standing to be on the executive, so if you haven’t paid your dues, bring your money with you. Only $20 for an individual, and $30 for a couple / family.
We look forward to seeing all of you there.
The October 2016 issue of The Southern Yarn is on its way through the post, and here in glorious colour for you to download.
