News for the Public

SAMIES Club is very sad to report Fran Chalmers’ sudden and unexpected passing on April 19th. Fran and 45 year member LMOB Jim have attended SAMIES Club Friday night socials for several decades. Fran will be sorely missed by all of  the SAMIES family.

SAMIES Club sends deep condolences as well as thoughts and prayers to LMOB Jim Chalmers and family.

At this time LMOB Jim and family are asking for privacy. A celebration of life for Fran will be held at a later date, tentatively in September after COVID19 is finished.

Details will be provided once plans are in place.

May Fran rest in peace!

THE SAMIES IOOB casino slotted at Yellowhead Casino for April 26 & 27 2020 is cancelled. We will notify members once a new date is confirmed by ALGC.
