Saturday March 7, 2020 the #1 Legion was host to an artsy flea market from Starry Dynamo Arts Market. There were quite a few people here and I believe it was a success. I think it might be a good idea to have the Legion put on a regular flea market. There isn't one downtown and I think it would be a great success. We would appreciate any input from anyone.
HIGH PERFORMANCE RODEO
The following is a letter from one of the performers at this year's HPR
Hello Susan, Rick, Kelli, and everyone at the Royal Canadian Legion #1,
I wanted to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU from myself and all of us involved with Gemini at the High Performance Rodeo. It was a true gift to share your space and spend time with you folks, and we greatly appreciate the incredible hospitality you offered us during our time there. No matter where the show is done in the future, our time at the Legion will undoubtedly be the standard we measure against going forward. It was the best and we miss it already!
Thank you again!
Louise, Mitchell, Kathryn, Vern, and the entire GEMINI/HPR Team
