At the General Membership Meeting held on June 10, the membership voted to donate $3,000.00 to Tobermory Outreach, a programme that exists within our community to assist those in need. On a beautiful morning recently, a cheque was presented to Brad Inglis on behalf of Tobermory Outreach. It is through everyone supporting the Legion that we are able to assist many causes in our fine community. Thank you!
