The Revelstoke Legion celebrated Legion Week with a free barbecue outside the legion hall on Saturday.

At 1 p.m. Chaplain Marlene McQuarrie said grace as Sergeant at Arms Geoff Horne paid respects on behalf of the Legion at the Cenotaph.

A free barbecue was held outside in the foyer where about 200 people attended and enjoyed fine cuisine cooked by Clancy Boettger and Buddy Rozander. The Revelstoke Cadets assisted the Legion by setting up the barbecue and putting away the tables and chairs later on. John Connor had set up a display of Legion sponsored recent and past sports events.

Lila Atchison-Aho provided the canned music inside for patrons enjoyment while president Greg Brownlee ran the meat draw.

Last but not least, the Ladies Auxiliary held a 100th birthday party for long-time member Kay Martin downstairs in the Legion with many friends and members attending. Congratulations to Kay from all of us.
