The Royal Canadian Lantzville Legion #257 recently contributed $8,080 for the purchase of a surgical headlight ($3,880) and a fluid warmer ($4,200) for the two new Operating Rooms now under construction at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH). The two new O.R.s means NRGH Surgical Suites will soon have ten Operating Rooms for patients undergoing surgery.
The Lantzville Legion #257 supports the needs of veterans as well as the community and this gift is possible due to poppy contributions each year. Poppies are on display for donation starting on October 31st, and should be warn until Remembrance Day on November 11th. The Royal Canadian Legion #257 in Lantzville also hosts a Remembrance Day Service adjacent to their hall each year.
