Legion Week activities kick off in Kapuskasing this weekend. It begins Saturday with a Credence Clearwater Revival cover band playing in the Branch 85 Hall starting at 8 pm. Other events include darts, cards and washer tournaments, and a senior super next Thursday night. Organizer Debbie Morin invites anyone out to the activities or to become a Legion member.
“And you don’t have to have somebody who was in the military before to be able to become a member,” she said. “It’s open to anybody nowadays and it’s very very important.”
Morin says the executive encourages current Legion members to bring someone new to their meetings to help get people interested in the organization.
Morin says the last two years for the Legion wasn’t easy.
“That we were open and closed, open and closed,” she said. “So we do have a very active executive and the members of the community have helped out a lot.”
