CARLYLE - The Carlyle branch of the Royal Canadian Legion recently received financial assistance for $10,000.
The funds were received from the Government of Saskatchewan under its Veteran Club Project Program.
Funding has been used to purchase new appliances, install a new water heater and third sink, and improve lighting to their kitchen at the Carlyle Legion Hut. The kitchen is now fully operational and has been inspected and approved by the provincial health department. The club now has a catering licence.
Catering and facility rental are extremely important to this organization’s fundraising activities.
“The Legion Branch #248 has a long history in this community of which I am proud to be a part of,” said president Mike Makelki. “The support we receive from this area is greatly appreciated and is the only way we can remain active. Our membership is small but dedicated. We appreciate the provincial funding and look forward to serving Carlyle and surrounding communities.”
