Legion thanks community for continued support

Members of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 91 were out in the ice and cold spreading some holiday cheer and warming hearts on the West Shore Tuesday morning.

Members were at the Tim Hortons’ location on Goldstream Avenue shortly after 7 a.m. on Dec. 22 handing out gift cards to cover coffees and other morning treats as a thank you to the West Shore community for its continued support.

“We want to give back to the community,” said president Norm Scott. “That’s what the Legion is part of.”

The West Shore branch, located at 761 Station Ave. in Langford, is also home to the Goldstream Food Bank Society, Emergency Social Services, and a variety of community and youth organizations.

The Legion will be open again on Jan 2. Membership is open to everyone, not just veterans.
