Branch 60 was officially reopened on August 19th (before the most recent COVID closure) with a special guest to cut the ribbon - 102 year old Legion member Doug Rickard who survived the Dieppe Raid on the same day 78 years ago! Here's a link to the video of the reopening ceremony featuring Doug, Mayor Marianne Meed Ward, MP Karina Gould and others: https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=Utp5eJ3NMm8&feature=youtu.be

On June 23rd, the Burlington Chamber Of Commerce held its annual Business Excellence Awards, virtually (ie, via the pandemic-made-popular Internet conference app, Zoom ). Mayor Marianne Meed Ward was one of the participants as was Branch executive Bob Ankrett. The mayor presented 3 Mayor's Awards  - one was for Not-For-Profit Community Service - awarded to Bob Ankrett (Branch chair for Government Liaison) who regularly engages with City personnel to synergistically advance the Branch's mission; in particular, for various veterans-related issues.

New Flooring in Lounge

You may recall the good-news email last October announcing that the Branch received another $25,000 federal grant via the New Horizons For Seniors program.

All of the provided funding has now been spent with the recent completion of new flooring installed in the lounge, dance floor, games area and in front of the bar (the repair of the foundation at the rear of the games area was completed earlier thus eliminating the egress of moisture that was a major concern for mould and for damage to the expensive pool table cloths).

These are some photos of the new flooring installed by Eric Cowell (who also installed all of the vinyl tile in the 2 kitchens, lower hallway and adjacent utility rooms):
