“The Legion is looking for people to help get involved with this and other events in order to raise money for the community and are also looking for more local organizations who want to collaborate to host events in the future,” said manager

Emma Whanstall. “We have a fantastic event space here at the Legion that can host fundraisers, including catering with our commercial kitchen and bar. We’re more than old guys drinking beer! If you have an event coming up, please do think of us.

“A huge thank you to our volunteers including Bob, Gerry and Val who put the event together and made this possible by donating their time and energy.”
