The Terrace Legion had its annual donation presentation this May, handing out money it raises throughout the year to local community groups.

Saturday May 5, a crowd gathered at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 13’s hall on Legion Ave. to see awards and cheques presented as well as new members initiated.

Money is donated from the Legion’s gaming account, said president Debbie Sinnott, adding that at this particular event more than $12,000 was donated.

Donations went toward the local 747 Air Cadets, local Girl Guides and Scouts Canada, Terrace Pipes and Drums, Terrace Churches Food Bank, The Dease Lake Girl Guides of Canada, a pre-Olympic

training camp to be held in August for the Special Olympics, student travel to the Skills Canada Trade Competition, Terrace Youth Curling, the Pacific Northwest Music Festival, Caledonia Senior Secondary’s Dry Grad Committee and a trip to Ottawa for four students from Terrace’s Centennial Christian School.

“We have fairly regular groups that come to us throughout the year,” said Sinnott who noted that Terrace’s Royal Canadian Legion Branch 13 is involved in supporting the community all year round.
