News Legion can bottow West Nipissing council’s tent for big fundraiser SHARE ON: Rocco Frangione, staff Monday, Apr. 15th, 2019 Branch 225 of the Royal Canadian Legion in Sturgeon Falls is getting a helping hand from West Nipissing council. Council has agreed to a Legion request to let it borrow its tent for a fundraising initiative for the NEO Kids Foundation in Sudbury on June 15th. The Legion is coordinating the event with another group. The municipality loans out its tents on a regular basis. A third party puts up the tents, take them down after the events are over and then stores them. Staff told council the cost to do this each time is $350. Council agreed to the request, acknowledging that the Legion does important fundraising work. Council is also letting the Legion borrow the tent a second time during the summer. This is for a July 20th event the Legion is holding to cover some of its costs.
