Most people can’t boast six decades of service, but Mollie Sand is not most people.
Sand was recently honoured for 60 years of service to the Ladies Auxilliary to the Royal Canadian Legion in Chilliwack.
The life-long Agassiz resdient, now 93, was a loyal mainstay of the Agassiz branch of the Auxilliary for 50 years before it disbanded and she transferred to the Chilliwack branch. Sand grew up on a farm on Appel road, which was named after her grandparents. She has always been devoted to her community, including volunteering the Agassiz-Harrison Museum, the Harrison Festival of the Arts and many moreplaces.
“She is well-known in the community, always with a smile,” her daughter, Marlene Sand, said.
The Ladies’ Auxiliary has been operating in tandem to the Royal Canadian Legion since its inception. Those interested in working with the Auxiliary can learn more about the organization at legion.ca.
