The Langford Legion, Prince Edward Branch #91, got a facelift this week.
About a dozen members of the Royal Canadian Navy teamed up to remove, paint and reinstall ceiling tiles around the Legion’s games room and bar.
The whole process took about three days, said Leading Seaman Colleen Chartrand.
“It’s nice to come out and throw some time in,” she said, noting that it’s their way of giving back.
Added Leading Seaman Adam McLeod: “The Legion does a lot for veterans and members of the community itself.
“The Legion has a stigma for being just for old retired people, but really it’s not.”
McLeod voiced hope that the fresh coat of paint will make the space more inviting and help bring new people in.
The Sherwin-Williams Paint store on Goldstream Avenue in Langford also helped with the effort by donating 15 gallons of paint for the project.
Legion branch president Norm Scott said random acts of generosity such as this go a long way in helping the organization save money, allowing it to use funds for more important community projects.
