Three new members came on board. Welcome to Ken Johnson, Dennis Johnson and Pastor Allan Clark. The Legion is open to anyone interested in joining.

This meeting also included the official appointment of John Berresford to the Sergeant at Arms position that his late father Allan Beresford carried out so well. The old sash was retired and presented to the Berresford family. Allan served as President and Sergeant at Arms for more than 20 years and bestowing this sash to the family represents a thank you for a job well done. The next Legion meeting will be on Tuesday, April 4 at 7:30 p.m.

A ceremony is planned for April 9 beginning at 1 p.m. to celebrate and remember the Vimy Ridge battle that helped to define Canada as a nation. The Legion was formed after the First World War to remember those who gave so much. It is only fitting that they be remembered on this 100th anniversary. Posters with additional details will be up around the village.
