Legion Week Celebrated at the Railway & Forestry Museum
Prince George, B.C. – Scorching weather hasn’t kept dozens from turning out to today’s Legion barbecue at the Railway and Forestry Museum.
It’s the send-off to Legion Week in B.C. and includes free hot dogs, hamburgers and ice-cream.
The Legion is also sponsoring the first 500 rides on the mini-rail. Prince George-Valemount Liberal MLA Shirley Bond calls the event “a celebration of the men and women” who serve our country.
“This is a great chance to say thank-you.”
First vice-president for the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 43, Margaret Goings, adds the barbecue is a way “to keep people aware of the work we do.”
158 flags, the number of Canadians who lost their lives in Afghanistan, are also on display in their memory.
So if you can handle the heat, you’ve got until 3 pm to land yourself some free food and perhaps even a free ride on the train.
