LETTER: A few facts about the Cloverdale Legion

To the editor;

Re: “Yes to a new Legion”, Dec. 3

[In] Reference to the Reporter article in the Dec. 3, 2010 issue headlined ‘Yes to a new Legion’, that I think you might consider correcting.

Firstly, the RCL Branch 6 has been chartered and in Cloverdale since March 19, 1927 or 83 years, and in its present location since April 17, 1948 or 62 years.

Secondly, the vote taken to go for a new legion was two-thirds of paid membership present at the meeting, not two-thirds of membership overall.

Thirdly, I understand the new Legion will front on 57 Avenue not 57 A as the reference under the picture in the Reporter states.

Just a note I may have missed at the meeting and has nothing to do with the Legion, but it appears if they extend 57A Avenue from 176 Street then they would have to remove Hawthorne Square for a new street and this would lead right into or through the new building located in drawings on that site.
