Donations supports Legions new lift
The Drumheller Legion now has two new chair lifts installed and ready to use thanks to the generosity of the community, and the hard work of Legion member Al Price.
Price spearheaded the campaign to have a lift installed at the main entrance to the clubroom, as well as one going into the basement for events. The old lift was damaged and was not in service for about a year. Price had the goal of raising approximately $18,000 to install the lift and received great support from the community.
Last week Western Financial was able to contribute $5,000 to the cause, to put the campaign over the top. President of the Drumheller Legion, Burt Cote, says they were able to raise enough funds to purchase and install the lifts, as well as do some important upgrades to the wiring at the Legion to power the lifts.
The funds from Western Financial came as a result of a contest late last year. Drumheller resident Tammy Loblick won $10,000, simply by receiving a quote at the Drumheller office, during the company’s winter campaign.
As part of the contest, the Western Financial office in Drumheller received a grant to be used for a community project. They selected the Legion’s lift campaign as the recipient. enrolled in the playschool and cial workshop on “Death and Dythey absolutely love attending. ing” on Sunday, April 23 at 11:30 Your support is and has been am.
