THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING OUR VETERANS
I would like to introduce myself. My name is Maureen Cook and I am excited to be the newly appointed Chair of Ways and Means. I have established a committee and the members are: Sandra Beverley, Eva Bugaric, Lynn Childs, Lynn Pitman, Wendy Vermeersch. The focus of the committee will be to raise funds for various capital expenditures such as accessibility, HVAC replacement, window replacements, etc.
Our first goal is to raise funds for an elevator at the Legion. This cost is just over $100,000. The Legion has applied for government funding and was successful in obtaining funding for an accessible washroom, accessible doors and some funding towards an elevator.
The elevator that has been identified to best serve our needs is what is known as a LULA (Limited Use Limited Application) and it operates like a regular elevator but is smaller in size. It has a weight capacity of 1400 lbs. which allows us to get supplies and equipment between floors.
An elevator is of great importance for several reasons:
We need to be accessibly compliant with government regulations by 2025.
There is a great need by members and the public to have accessibility to the entire facility.
The Legion is designated as an emergency shelter for the community.
The Legion is an evacuation point for Extendicare.
No donation is too small. We hope you can open your hearts and your wallets to help “Give Us a Lift”.
Chair, Ways and Means
