River Hebert and Area News
Fresh off one of the most memorable Remembrance Day services in recent memory, legion secretary Dara Legere posted the following message on the Joggins Legion Facebook page. “Thank you to everyone who attended the service at the cenotaph and to all who attended the banquet at the legion. It was one of the best Remembrance Day services I have ever been part of. It makes me proud to be a part of the Royal Canadian Legion. It is so great to see a community of 500 people turn out in such numbers to show they care about our veterans and those who serve and have served in our Armed Forces. We truly are a great community,”
