Peachland Legion

We will never forget, and the Peachland Legion Branch #69 plays an essential role in ensuring our town knows and appreciates the sacrifice of all veterans. They do a lot more than hand out poppies and provide veterans’ support – in addition to their important role

during Remembrance Day ceremonies at the community centre, the Peachland Legion contributes to many local groups. Most recently, they made a donation towards the repair of the historic mural across from Heritage Park, which was damaged by vandals.

Here’s the latest from the Legion:

Luke Shearwood (right), Betty MacNichol and Trevor Castle were very busy on bottle drive day!

Their July bottle drive was a HUGE success! Legion president Jean Saul says a whopping 41,988 bottles, cans and refundable containers were dropped off at the IGA July 11. That means the Legion raised $4,101.58. That money goes towards helping other groups in the community. At least 18 hard-working volunteers worked for eight hours, and made a total of 26 trips to the recycling depot. The Legion wants to thank all Peachlanders for their support!
