The Royal Canadian Legion in Kapuskasing is resuming its chairlift fundraising campaign after stopping due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The chairlift will help make the two level Legion more accessible to its members. Fundraising chairman Ron Caron says the total cost of the project is more than one hundred thousand dollars.

“There are lots of renovations that have to be done,” Caron said. “We need to have two new washrooms installed in the Legion — one upstairs and one downstairs, that’s accessible to wheelchairs.”

Caron says among the fundraising initiatives include the application for a government grant.

“We are looking for donations from the public to help us with this and we are going to have a Christmas draw, that’s going to happen December 5th. Tickets for this draw is $20 a ticket and there is $5,000 dollars in prize.”

Tickets for the December draw available at the Legion and other businesses in town, including Circle Confectionary. The project also received support from the Tim Horton’s Smile Cookie Campaign.

It was hoped that the project was to have been completed by this fall, but will be delayed until the funds are collected.
