The 2642 3 RCR Cadet Corps invited the President of the Legion to participate in their Christmas Dinner; I found it to be a joyous occasion rooted in strong traditions. The Legion made a donation to the Cadet Corps for $3,000.

The Trucker’s Toy Drive / Christmas Hamper was a complete success doubling the donations from last year. As a team, we have been able to help the more than 85 families within our community as well as extend our generosity to surrounding communities, trying to ensure everyone has a good Christmas. The Trucker’s Toy Drive made a donation to the Legion of $5,500 towards the Christmas Hamper. The Food Pantry also donated all of the non-perishables and the turkeys for the Christmas Hampers. On behalf of the community of Petawawa, and Renfrew County, I would like to thank everyone for their generosity this Holiday Season. It takes dedication from individuals to make miracles happen.

Keep your eyes open for Fish and Chips starting back up in the New Year! C
