VIMY OAK TREE  TREE   FUNDRAISER

In 2017, we planted a Vimy Oak Tree on the South East

corner of our Legion.  There has been a lot of interest by members of our community.  We now plan to place a

plaque with the story beside the tree. 

Projected costs are $1700.00.  All

donors to the project will be recognized. 

This is an excellent opportunity to remember a member

of your family who served in the military. 

There are three levels of sponsorship.

GOLD  - $100

SILVER - $50

BRONZE -  $25 

If  you wish to contribute to this very worthwhile project,

please complete the form and  in an envelope with a cheque or 

cash and hand in to the Bar Steward.

 Thanks for your support
