The Estevan Legion has been steadily paying down their debt thanks largely to community support. Recently, there was another large donation from a local business.

"On Wednesday, September 20, Clifton came in the the Legion," explained Leonard Grube, treasurer of the Estevan Legion, "and presented us a cheque for the money that his customers had donated. It came to over $5100 and we couldn't be more appreciative for Clifton and No Frills for settling that up for us."

"That was Clifton's customers which are the people of the community giving us that support and it's fantastic."

He adds that while they have been able to make a dent in their debt, there is still work to do.

"We're probably halfway so we have a ways to go yet. We have the long-term stuff cleaned up and we have to work on the remainder of things and we also have run into some more building problems so we're going to be getting more bills with that as well. So we certainly aren't finished with our fundraising yet but we will just continue as we have been and hopefully the community will continue to support us."

"We've been here for many many years and we have done a l awful lot of community things that people rally appropriate and they've been coming and telling us the types of things the Legion has done for them in the past so it's been great."
