Despite the COVID-19 restrictions, the legion continues to meet each month and conduct business via Zoom meetings.
A Super Bowl pool was organized and the winners were:
First quarter, Body Singleton, $150;
Half time, Marsha McLean, $200;
Third quarter, Rick Schreiner, $250; and
Final score, Rick Schreiner, $400.
Congratulations to the winners.
We have had requests for donations to various local groups. As you may know, the money collected during the poppy campaign stays in our community to be used for the benefit of our veterans.
The main purpose of the fund is to assist veterans in need. It is a trust fund and can only be used with the permission of Provincial Command. This year, once permission is granted, donations will be made to the Moose Mountain Lodge, Arcola Medical Clinic, STARS Air Ambulance, Manor Fire Department and the local Air Cadet squadron.
It is thanks to the generosity of the community that we are able to do this.
