*** Kitchen help wanted ***

The Branch would like to be able to offer lunches/light meals during the week, possibly Saturday nights and for special events.  We are looking for someone to work for a couple of hours each day to prepare sandwiches, burgers, fries, chicken strips, etc. from about 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., along with Saturday evenings and scheduled events.  An interested party could turn this into a business which could be lucrative for themselves as well as the Legion.   If you are interested, please contact Moira in the office.

The Honourable Karina Gould, Member of Parliament for Burlington, cut the ribbon on Oct. 14 as the Branch gratefully acknowledged the various government grants for capital projects to assist with recovery from mandated closures and to improve accessibility within the building. Among other things, the federal government's grant to improve accessibility allowed the Branch to replace its old bar with a new wheelchair-accessible structure. You can watch the ribbon cutting ceremony HERE.

Branch 60 was proud to host members of the 2022 Ruck to Remember campaign on July 31. The 900km ruck march along the Bruce Trail from Tobermory to Niagara-on-the-Lake is in support of a Legion program called "Operation Leave the Streets Behind" which aims to get and keep veterans off the streets. We served them dinner and breakfast and provided overnight accomodation. Plus, we presented them with a cheque for $10,000. Pictured below are Ruck team members along with President Murray Sutherland (far right) and Vice Presidents John Mattocks (far left) and Dan Lauzon (lower left). More information on the Ruck is available HERE.
