(Barry and Pat O'Handley presented a cheque for $1,000 to Frosty Forrest and the Estevan Legion)
The Estevan Legion has fallen on some difficult times lately, but in true Estevan form, the community has risen up to show its support for the long time service club.
Yesterday, there were two cheques presentations made to the Estevan Legion.
Barry and Pat O'Handley from Room by Room Furniture felt it was important to help out the group after hearing they were in financial need.
"I spoke with Barry the other day," explained Frosty Forrest who accepted the $1,000 cheque on behalf of the Legion, "and he mentioned that his kids had come through minor sports and the Legion has always supported minor sports in town. It's wonderful to see businesses step up and help us out when we need it."
Barry added that he hopes that his donation will inspire other businesses and individuals to recognize what all the Legion does for the community and to help in a similar way
"I'd like to see the rest of the community step up and help the Legion as much as they have helped everyone else in the community."
As well, Larry Preddy made a personal donation to the Estevan Legion n honour of his father who was a veterans and member of the Legion himself.
"When my mother passed away last year, I inherited some money and some of that was earned by my dad and i'm sure he'd would have wanted to some of this to go to this cause."
"As a member of the Legion and in appreciation of the things our Legion members has done for us in the past, I think it was the least I could do."
He added that he'd like to see the sons of daughters of other veterans show their support to the Legion and the sacrifices that made.
