The Royal Canadian Legion Mount Benson, Branch #256 continues to show its dedication to the health and well being of local Veterans. The group recently delivered $4,500 to Amber Adams of the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation for the Palliative Care Unit at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH). This generous contribution was thanks to their 2009 Poppy Fund and "goes to the aid and comfort of veterans and seniors," said Legion #256 President Dave Beyea. Poppy sales for 2010 will be available from October 29th to November 10th.
