Legions of thanks for Castlegar/Robson upgrades

Royal Canadian Legion Br# 170 in better shape thanks to expertise and generosity

New equipment means new level of comfort at Castlegar/Robson branch of Royal Canadia Legion

The Royal Canadian Legion BR#170 Castlegar/Robson has just finished its HVAC upgrade for the upstairs main hall. This project was required as the heating

and poor air conditioning system was failing and in need of major repair. A grant application was made to Columbia Basin Trust for funding of this major project. A sizable portion of the grant was approved, the remaining funds were going to be raised with events at the legion, and donations. This is still in the works. A local contractor was awarded the bid to do the repair. Venture Mechanical Systems of Castlegar did the job. During the repair and upgrade more repair work was found to be required. Venture Mechanical donated a substantial amount of extra materials to complete the upgrade at no charge. The Legion is grateful for this funding and the entire extra effort Venture put in.

The Legion hall services many local events; the Strawberry Tea during Sunfest, Remembrance Day services, memorial services and funeral services. The hall is available for rent by any organization in the local area. Now with the improved cooling people have a cool place to use, and during the cold winter months, a warm place to cozy up to.

All veterans and members of the Castlegar/Robson Legion wish to thank Columbia Basin Trust, and the City of Castlegar for their continued support of the Legion.
