The Legion Cenotaph Committee, headed by Jim McEwan, has been working hard along with many other members of the Branch to provide Lantzville with a new, permanent, recognizable monument for Remembrance ceremonies. Although our “fundraising” is continuing, we are in the final “construction and commemoration” stage of the project. It is the committee’s goal to have the structure in place at Huddlestone Park for a dedication, tentatively scheduled for the 9th of August. Please support our fundraiser on May 25th.
