Volunteer help appreciated

Many hands and the proper equipment allowed this job to be done properly and more efficiently

Like many organizations in this town, the Legion, Branch 228, depends on the work of volunteers to be able to exist and to serve the community in their various ways.

Most of the Legion volunteers are members of the local branch but on Easter weekend a number of volunteers, not all legion members, gave up a considerable amount of their time to improve the exterior appearance of our building.

A big thank you goes out to Barclay Fletcher for coordinating the efforts of Clarke Fletcher, Ethan Fletcher, Jett Bader, Brad Bader, Calvin Belair, Roger Hagkull, Bob Swain, Wally Kreke and Jerry Ness in this project.  If we missed anyone we apologize and send you our thanks as well. None of this work could have taken place without the generous donation of supplies and equipment from Barclay Fletcher Construction.

Many hands and the proper equipment allowed this job to be done properly and more efficiently than if we had to do it on our own.

The Legion would like at this time to ensure that these people know how much we appreciate the job that they did for us. Our building looks refreshed and more inviting to the public.

Lynn Barker

Secretary, RCL Branch 228
