In the summer of 2015 the Branch Executive initiated a Building Improvement program to address some issues around our premises, foremost of which was a leaking roof. Guided by our MP at the time (and Branch Member) Costas Menagakis and supported by his staff, we were able to acquire a Federal Grant as part of the Canada 150 Program. The initiatives we hoped to address as part of this activity including replacing the roof, improving our parking lot and providing some improved equipment/facilities in our Kitchen and Bar area.
“We’ve Been Nominated!”
Our front garden has been nominated for recognition from Richmond Hill Blooms. Richmond Hill Blooms is designed to encourage residents to create and recognize attractive, colorful and well maintained front gardens in the community. Our Legion volunteers have worked so hard on our front garden, it really is of no surprise that we are in the running for further recognition. Town horticulturalists will be identifying a shortlist of the best gardens in each of Richmond Hill’s six wards. If a bright yellow sticker appears on our recognition sign between July 18 and July 31 it means we have made the shortlist. Congratulations to all of the volunteers who continue to work hard through rain and scorching heat to keep our gardens looking fantastic!
