More funding for Saskatchewan veterans service clubs

Saskatchewan is announcing the latest funding for veterans service clubs.

In the 2022-23 offering of the funding, $109,295 has been provided to Royal Canadian Legion branches in Lloydminster and surrounding communities, including Frenchman Butte, Maidstone and Marshall from the Saskatchewan Veterans Service Club Support Program, according to officials.

The funds went to renovation projects including repairs to roofs and basement walls, lighting and electrical work, furnace replacements, flooring and replacement of aging appliances like a fridge or freezer.

Some $487,000 was awarded in the second intake period this year, which closed on Aug. 31.

“This program serves to strengthen the long-term sustainability of service clubs, including Legion branches and Army Navy and Air Force Veterans (ANAVETS) units based in Saskatchewan,” says Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Laura Ross.
