Members of the Weyburn branch of the Royal Canadian Legion presented Red Hearn with a 55-year long-service pin on Sept. 22 at the Hill Top Manor.
In the first photo seen above, those who were present for the presentation of the pin were, from left, Dale Huff, Brian Glass, Hearn’s daughter Teresa Lafoy, Fran Oudot and Owen White.
In the second photo is a closeup of the pin that Hearn was presented with.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Weyburn Legion was not able to hold their usual ceremony where long-service pins are presented and longtime members are recognized for their many years of being a part of the local branch.
Hearn is one of the last surviving veterans of the Second World War in Weyburn, along with Howard Schmidt, who both reside at Hill Top Manor.
Hearn received a pin in March for the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, and was mentioned in the Royal Canadian Legion’s memorial book of war veterans.
