Pincher Creek’s Legion Branch 43 hosted a private dinner Sept. 17 in recognition of the first National Legion Week, which ran Sept. 17 to 23. The new weeklong acknowledgment is meant to bring attention to the work of Legions across Canada, which serve and support military and RCMP veterans, as well as the community itself.
