This year’s Ladies Night Out was held on Thursday, May 28 at the Pangman School, with Anna Marie Willey as the main speaker.
Anna Marie Willey presented “The Willow Tree” at the Pangman Ladies’ Night Out . She has presented this story several times and welcomes the opportunity to share it further. This story is based on Anna Marie’s unpacking her father’s kitbags from the Second World War. They had remained unpacked since his return from service nearly seven decades later. Inside the canvas time capsules, there were hundreds of images, diaries and much memorabilia to reflect upon and understand.
Together with her brother, Paul and niece, Marie-Claire, they have written seven songs and combined the original music with images about John Winichuk’s time with the RCAF 427 Squadron based in Leeming, England. The story covers an important era, from the time he received his enlistment letter as a young man in Melville, Saskatchewan in 1941 until the time of his return in 1946. He passed away in 1987.
“The Willow Tree” is a tribute to all who served and those who contributed in many ways at home during these difficult years. She notes her father’s story is only one of the thousands of those who sacrificed and served to provide us with the freedom we experience today.
There was a good turn out at this year’s event with ladies from Ceylon, Ogema, Khedive, Trossachs, Regina & Pangman. It was a fun evening with many door prizes and gifts. The proceeds from the evening was gifted to the Deep South Personal Care Home Ladies Auxiliary for which they are so grateful–their work is to benefit the residents whenever they can to make their home more enjoyable.
Thank you for Anna Marie Willey and Eileen Tunall for providing us with information for this article.
