As many of you know the Legion is a great place to have a drink and socialize, but behind the doors it is much more.
The Legion is filled with kind and generous people, who volunteer many hours to fundraising for charities, and local groups, hold community events (which the public is always welcome to), and create Christmas for families that might otherwise not have had.
I have had the privilege in seeing the members come together and create Christmas joy in many different ways, such as building and delivering many Christmas hampers to local families in need, as well as pooling their resources together and asking for assistance from other members and companies to create a Christmas miracle annually for a local family truly needing help, complete with the presents and a visit from Santa.
I have watched the members bring so much joy and happiness to local families this Christmas and past years,they have shown great kindness and compassion.
My family was one of the fortunate families to receive some of this amazing kindness this year, and would like to take this opportunity to thank all members of the Legion, Ricky Bobby’s fishing derby, as well as Minto Trucking, Performance Contracting, and all others who played a role in the gift we received this year.
Thank you, and happy new year to all.
