September 17-23 has been designated National Legion Week, and the Humboldt Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion invites Humboldt and area residents to stop in for its Open House. The event will be held on Friday, September 22 and Saturday, September 23.
The Open House includes tours of the Benson Hingley Military Museum from 5-7 pm on Saturday and 3-5 on Saturday. The award-winning museum features a wide array of wartime artifacts, and it houses scores of documents that retell the experiences of young men and women in battle.
Don Hogemann with the Humboldt Branch of the Legion says that some of the members will be on hand both days to talk about the Legion, both nationally and in the community. On Friday from 5-7, soup and a bun will be available along with the invitation to visit the Legion Clubroom from 4-10 pm both days.
Stop on by, sign up for a membership or renew your existing one with the Humboldt Legion.
