The Royal Canadian Legion has a long history of proudly supporting Veterans and have found a way to get your friends or family arrersted and raised over $10,000 thanks to the community of Drumheller.

The Legion supports essential services for those in need, and responds to the unique needs of every community they are in.

This is why they have chosen the "Bail me out" fundraiser that ran on March 1, 2018.

"We need to do things that don't cost any money, and this is just volunteer time for the legion members, and as of right now we are doing excellent and I am so happy that so many people have shown up; it's great!" beamed Jackie McTavish of the Royal Canadian Legion Drumheller Branch.

The Legion in Drumheller is not only a place for veterans to go to socialize, but everybody is welcome at the Legion. They have pool tables, karaokee, a full kitchen to have lunch and supper, as well as a bar for cocktails if you desire.

"On behalf of the legion, I would really like thank everybody personally for all their volunteer hours helping me and I would also like to thank all the members of the town of Drumheller and the community; the great response and all the fun that we are having here, even if it's been a little crazy at times it's been fun," says McTavish.

The funds that are raised through the "Bail me Out" fundraiser will go towards helping to keep the operation of the legion going so it is there for everyone of all ages to enjoy for years to come.

"As we all know, as the years go by a lot of veterans have passed away, and we just don't have a lot of people coming to the legion; and we would really like to encourage people (to come)," explains McTavish.

The Legion raised more than $10,000 thanks to the community of Drumheller.
