The MRI fundraising initiative is underway and Willetts explained that Branch 155 has always made donations to the hospital a priority.  The Royal Canadian Legion is, in fact, the largest public service organization in Canada.

Today was a landmark for another reason asTracy Murray, the Foundation’s new Executive Director, began work and this was her first cheque presentation.


The Foundation encourages everyone to thank Legion members for all of their efforts in raising funds for Saugeen Memorial and to come out to help commemorate the 100th anniversary of the World War I Armistice.   There are a host of events and ceremonies planned for the weekend of November 10th and 11th.  Come out to support and remember the efforts of those who gave their lives throughout Canada’s history.
