Ayer’s Cliff Le­gion do­nates to CAB

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

Last Thurs­day, sev­eral mem­bers of the Ayer’s Cliff Le­gion Branch 128 pre­sented a cheque of $2000 to the CAB R.H. Rediker, in Stanstead. It was the sec­ond do­na­tion un­der the MOU (Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing) Part­ner­ship that the or­ga­ni­za­tion has with Branch 128. “The money is used to come to the aid of Vet­er­ans or mem­bers of their fam­ily, to as­sure an as­sis­tance to these in­di­vid­u­als that the CAB’S

pro­grams don’t cover. And we’re try­ing to be more present in Ayer’s Cliff so it’s nice to have Ayer’s Cliff con­tacts and sup­port,” com­mented My­lene Labonté, the di­rec­tor of the CAB RH Rediker.

“It was the money left in our Poppy Cam­paign from last year and since we are start­ing a new cam­paign, we trans­ferred the rest of that money to the CAB. The Poppy fund is a national in­sti­tu­tion with strict rules: to help Vet­er­ans and fam­ily mem­bers of Vet­er­ans. There is no over­head and no ad­min­is­tra­tion fees for han­dling the money,” ex­plained Bri­gadier-gen­eral (ret’d) Robin Gagnon, the pres­i­dent of the Ayer’s Cliff Le­gion.

CAB RH Rediker di­rec­tor Mylène Labonté (cen­tre) was thrilled to re­ceive a $2000 cheque from Ayer’s Cliff Le­gion mem­bers Su­san Fletcher-doust, 2nd vice-pres­i­dent, and Brig. Gen­eral (ret’d) Robin Gagnon, pres­i­dent.
