This is just a reminder of what we posted last week. The two owners who operate Reni Decors & Antiques, Renata and Patrick, are donating 10 per cent of all their sales between February 17 and March 31 to the Legion. Their store is located right next to Mon Village Restaurant in Saint-Lazare. Renata sells home decor, beddings, gifts, pillows, etc. while Patrick has a large antique and collectables store in the basement. He deals in military antiques, uniforms, helmets, medals and general antiques and is a member of our Legion Branch #115. Please drop by and see what they have to offer. You may contact them at (450) 458-4319. This is a very kind gesture on their part to help out our Legion during the time we are still closed.
A COVID-19 vaccination clinic is being set up in the Centre Multisports in Vaudreuil-Dorion and a mobile clinic will also be set up in the Salle de l’Amitié on rue Saint-Jean-Baptiste in Rigaud. Those 70 years and older (born in 1951 or before) are now able to make an appointment to receive their COVID-19 vaccine through the ClicSante portal or by calling 1-877-644-4545. If you live on the Island of Montreal the age limit is now down to 65 and over.
The flag outside the Legion was lowered this last Thursday, March 11 in respect for the International COVID-19 Memorial Day. This is to remember those who have died around the world from this pandemic virus and also those who are suffering and those who are working so hard to control it. Over 22,300 Canadians have passed away this past year from this awful virus.
Special get well wishes go out to our second oldest Br. #115 member, Dorothy (Doris) Blaise, who was taken to the hospital this past Wednesday after a bad fall which resulted in a broken hip in her residence.
Lest we forget…
