Our pres­i­dent, Bob How­ell, and his wife Colleen made a sig­nif­i­cant do­na­tion to the branch that helped with bills. We also re­ceived an­other do­na­tion from a mem­ber who wishes to re­main anony­mous. Thank you for your gen­eros­ity!

You are down to the last two fish and chip Fri­days of the sea­son. The 26th will be the last one un­til Septem­ber. Bar­be­cues start June 9.

We are look­ing for a few stu­dent vol­un­teers who need hours to help us with our Lob­ster­fest on June 3. If you know some­one who would like to work have them call the legion at 613-687-2504 and leave name and num­ber for call back.
