A strong caring community

For some time now it has been common knowledge that the main hall at the Legion was in need a facelift along with other important renovations throughout the building. Of course everyone knows these projects need funds to get the renovations started. A plan was put into place to begin the fundraising needed for these projects.

On April 9 Branch 129 held a fundraiser as a method to gather this financial support. The community overwhelmingly responded and showed its support for this worthwhile project by attending the sold out event. Those who attended generously participated in the live and silent auctions to help make this event the success that were hoping to achieve.

On behalf of the executive at Branch 129 we want to express our sincerest appreciation to all who attended and others for financial contributions.

A special Thank You is needed to the radio stations especially Canoe FM for getting the message across with on air interviews.  We sincerely acknowledge our community businesses for their efforts and contributions. Furthermore we send our thanks to the Legion Ladies Auxiliary the Cadet corps and all the volunteers and the Lions Club who not only showed a strong contingency but jumped in and volunteered to assist during the event.

This town may be known as the small Village of Haliburton but in times of need this community shows its pride and generosity with its BIG heart.

This heart deserves all the appreciation and praise it can get!

As for the veterans that started this Legion in 1928 we owe it to them to carry on.

President Haliburton Branch 129
