Laura McPherson of the Espanola Royal Canadian Legion Branch #39 helped organize the friendly Christmas Card competition this year. She would like to thank everyone that donated cards to the Legion for the send a wish to our armed forces initiative. Cards were brought to the three Espanola elementary schools, AB Ellis Public, Sacred Heart Catholic and Ecole St. Joseph where the students wrote notes and drew pictures in the cards supplied. She says others made their own cards totalling over 300. Residents also brought cards to the Legion, with 429 cards and letters sent out to the Canadian Armed Forces. Thank you to everyone who took part.
