Lloyd George, President of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 147 Barrie and Suzi Schultz, Manager of MEDIchair Barrie are all smiles as they

announce the 1st annual Veterans Appreciation Luncheon. Seventy-five veterans and companions will be honoured.Local veterans

are encouraged to RSVP with Suzi at (705) 722-3376 or via suzi.schultz@barrie.medichair.com

 

 “We pride ourselves on giving back to the community in which we operate,” says John Tom, owner MEDIchair Barrie.  We are very proud of our Canadian Forces and we wanted to do something special for our Barrie and area military family.  Having a complimentary Appreciation Luncheon to honour our local military heroes is our way of saying thank you.”

 

“With Base Borden so close by and many retired veterans living in the local area, we’re hoping to bring together troops that are currently serving to meet those that have served before them. To host this event at the Barrie Royal Canadian Legion serves two purposes. Firstly, we believe the Legion is an institution in itself and its role needs to be remembered. Secondly, it’s a reminder to communities that their local Legion needs to be supported to ensure its prosperity and survival going forward.”

 

“This Remembrance Day, in addition to making a donation and wearing a poppy, perhaps it’s time to consider joining your community the Legion. As well, local business owners may consider annual memberships for their employees.”
