COE HILL — Following a summer of delays, disappointments and lift equipment malfunctions the new lift at Royal Canadian Legion Branch 581 in Coe Hill has finally passed various tests and inspections was deemed ready for use.
At the regular legion monthly meal on Sun., Jan 29th the lift was put into service for the first time.
Nancy Campbell-Hubbard attended the dinner and required the use of the lift to easily enter the hall.
