Malahat Legion hosting Casino Night during Legion Week to raise funds

The Malahat Legion is joining 65 legions in communities across B.C. and the Yukon to celebrate Legion Week.

On June 29 they are hosting a Casino night, with fun money and prizes donated from the community. There is a small entry fee, with all money raised going to Toonies for Troops.

“Legion Week builds festive momentum leading up to Canada Day and honours the duty, service and sacrifice of our veterans,” said David Whittier, executive director of the BC/Yukon Command.

“During Legion Week and throughout the year, we welcome people from every corner of the community to visit their local legion to celebrate and learn about our country’s proud past,” said Whittier. “Membership is open to all citizens and we encourage community members to join their local legion and participate in building Canada’s legacy of diversity, vibrancy and strength.”
