Legion News - 2/26/21

I was reminded this week of our 2019 Remembrance Day service and the iconic photograph of our padre Todd Nelson with his black clerical robe covered in snow and a children’s choir in the background. Todd has moved back to New Brunswick and as Peggy Graham told me, he was a fantastic padre for us who was always available when we needed him, and he will be missed. Peggy has obtained a commemorative Legion fob watch, which she will be forwarding on to Todd to show our appreciation. Did you get your tickets for our Irish Stew Dinner on March 12th? Tickets were limited to 100. March 5th is the cut off date. Acton students are improving with their entries for the Annual Remembrance Day Poster and Literary contest. This year we scored 2 firsts, 2 seconds and 1 third at the Zone level (there are 11 Legions in our zone) Lets see how we do at district level.) More details to follow. Our two oldest veterans celebrated important birthdays recently, Sytske Drijber is now 101, and Cecil Curtiss is a grand old 106. Congratulations to both. When Halton Hills eventually moves to an Orange Zone. Our Membership chair, Kati Legge, will set aside a day to make herself available to take dues and hand out membership stickers. In the meantime, dues can be dropped off in the mailbox at rear entry door ($60.00 cash or cheque). The Executive met on February 23rd, for the first time in 3 months. Wes gave us a summary of the work that has been going on during our closure. The main bar cooler rebuild is now complete, Patchwork roof repairs have progressed, Air conditioning has been upgraded and lighting fixtures are being upgraded as we speak. Most of the Cooler upgrade was covered by our insurance. Stay safe and well during these trying times.
