Legion looks after their Vets

Thanks to Legion staff and Community Bus on behalf of Vet.

Dear Editor

On behalf of Elsie Schneider, I want to thank the Legion very much for paying her fare on the Community Bus. Elsie wanted very much to go to the Celebration for the Vets on Friday night but the only way she could get to the Legion from the Ashcroft Health Care Facility was to take the Community Bus which has a wheelchair lift. She decided that, no matter what the cost, she really wanted to go and see all of her friends. And what a wonderful surprise when the Legion President, George Cooke told her that the Legion would pay for the bus fare. Elsie thanks very much the Legion and Steve Lee who helped her in and out of the bus. The Legion also covered all of the veterans’ dinners.

I would also like to say that the Community Bus bent over backwards to make the outing possible for Elsie. Their driver, Nadine, was so kind and considerate of Elsie. My 91 year old friend, who is confined to the Extended Care, had a wonderful evening, thanks to the Legion and the Community Bus.
