A message from The Foundation President

Hello to all our SAMF Members out there in the wilds of this Covid 19 business! My first thoughts are to all of you, hoping that you are managing to adjust well to the once a week shopping trip to Superstore, talking to the grand kids on the phone as often as you can, hoping that that they aren’t trying to get away from you. Mom, how come they call so often?! They never used to! Can’t you just hear it now. It makes you feel so helpless doesn’t it. We all have to do out personal bit to ensure safety for everyone, but it sure gets old in a hurry. My wife has been cleaning the kitchen cupboards. It almost passes the old boys test, with the peas all sized right to left, next the corn niblets, the various sauces that I don’t think I’ve ever noticed before…there must be a lot of sauce in what we eat! Then the chips stacked neatly in their brand new wicker box in the basement, the fridge in the kitchen has never been this organized, the burned out lightbulbs in the garage are all replaced now with brand new ones (I never knew there were that many shades of curly cue light bulbs before), and tomorrow, believe it or not, we’re going to clean out the freezer in the garage. I wonder how many different sizes of turkeys there will be resting on the bottom of it!?

But seriously folks, even if you just want to gab, give a call to an old friend. These are the types of activities we should all be engaging in. Get out your old telephone lists and see if how many of them you can find at the end of a telephone. I will bet you dollars to doughnuts you will find quite a few, and they will be overjoyed you called. Just tell them you are spending the time catching up with old friends. They will appreciate it.

Seriously though folks, don’t let this thing get you down. We have been through hard times in the past, and we persevered. This isn’t any fun, but we’ll persevere again I dare say. And come next fall the sunrises and sunsets may even be a different sort of a colour, as there isn’t as much pollution from car exhausts in the air. If you’ve got something on your mind museum wise, just give Karen or myself a call and we’ll see what we can do for you. But the most important thing to do is to stay safe folks. We want you around for as long as the good Lord wants you to be. Don’t let any of these nasty little virri get you down. It’ll all be over soon and we can all tell our stories down at the golf course towards the end of summer.

Take care all. And be kind to your grocery store clerks. Give them a wave and say hello and that you appreciate them.

John Cody

Dear Sir/Madam

The Shearwater Aviation Museum Foundation has been working in conjunction with the Shearwater Aviation
Museum for the past 27 years to continue to build and expand our programs and offerings to the military and
civilian community alike. In order to meet our goals, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for
support. We hope that you will be able to take part in our newest venture to grow our building fund.

This year we are asking for your help to launch our newest fundraiser The 500 Club! What is a 500 Club you ask;
well, we will be selling 500 tickets at a cost of $100 per ticket. Between the months of September and May, we
will be having weekly and monthly cash draws as well as special events draws for additional cash and prizes. When
you purchase a ticket you are assigned a numbered tag on our 500 club board, the board remains at the museum
for each draw. Each draw, ALL tags go into the drum to be drawn out regardless if you have already won
previously. Your odds of winning are 1 in every 11th draw. However, if we do not sell 250 tickets, the draw will be
cancelled and all funds returned to the ticket purchasers.

This Fundraiser will be a great addition to our fundraising efforts and we look forward to your support. Should you
have any questions please feel free to contact us. To purchase tickets, contact SAMF office at 902-461-0062 or 1-
888-497-7779 (toll free) You can purchase your ticket over the phone with Mastercard or Visa.

Please see below for draw dates, and prizes.

Thank you for your continued support
