Families are invited out to a picnic like gathering at the Massey Royal Canadian Legion #432.

Legion secretary, Doreen Ferguson, says the Legion is hosting a special occasion rededicating the war memorial and dedicating two benches at the site.

Ferguson adds one of the veteran’s benches was donated by the Township of Sables-Spanish River, the other donated by a supporter who wishes to remain anonymous.

The day will start with a parade, flag raising and rededication of the war memorial, which was relocated to the Legion about ten years ago, and the benches.

Ferguson says the rest of the day will be a lighthearted social including a barbecue and local talent under the tents.

Everyone is invited to attend on Saturday, June 9th at 11:00am.
