Agassiz Legion delivers urgent call for help

Volunteers are the lifeblood of Branch 32 in Agassiz

I have been a resident of Agassiz for 10 to 11 years. In that time period I have been an active volunteer in a number of community ventures. Most notably, I have been very active in Br. 32 Legion activities, 3.5 years as president and seven years hosting Remembrance Day services.

It should be noted that all of this time, Br. 32 has been operated with the co-operation of volunteers. Members are dying and volunteers are disappearing as a result.

WE NEED HELP if Br. 32 is to continue as it presently exists. We nay have ot close the lounge. It could still be operated for special occasions, if volunteers are available.

This does not suggest that the Legion Organization in Agassiz has to die, ie. the Poppy Drive, and Remembrance Day can continue, with the support of volunteers.

Please read the ad in today’s paper. We have good facilities. We need younger members to utilize them.
