The General Meeting was held last night. Another great turnout of Members. The Bruce Grey Hall of Fame requested a vote as to whether or not the General Membership wanted them back in their new Legion. It was discussed that we probably won’t have any spare room as the new Legion will probably be less than half the size of our previous building. We have limited funds to work with!
It was also brought to our attention that we would be liable on our insurance for Hall of Fame events. It was felt that our limited space would better utilized honouring our Veterans and our own history. The General Membership voted overwhelmingly against having the Bruce Grey Hall of fame in our new Legion. They want to keep our new Legion for our Veterans and our community. We wish the Bruce Grey Hall of Fame much success in finding their new home and getting started on their new journey. We are looking forward to our new Legion and making it a place that our Members and community will enjoy for many many years to come.
