I would like to provide an update to everyone on the survival of the Greely Legion.
We have been very fortunate to have received financial assistance from the following sources:
- a grant from the Federal Government
- a donation form District Command
- Funds from the 'Go Fund Me' account
- Profit from the sale of 'HMCS Gloucester' ball caps
Sponsorship from the two drive-in movie nights and two live drive-in concerts which were organized by Bobby B Productions.
The community, as well as local community organizations, branch members, members of SUPRAD, retired HMCS Gloucester members, and friends of the branch, have all made contirbutions. These funds will cover our financial requirements into the summer months. Hopefully, before the fall, we will be open and operating again.
A big thank you to all for your assistance.
