APPLAUSE: Grocer's efforts helps with meal

To the Editor,

The Ladies Auxiliary of Royal Canadian Legion  Branch 257 in Lantzville would like to extend its deepest gratitude to Randy and Quality Foods for donating all the food for our Nov. 11 roast beef dinner.

We also wish to thank Randy, Jennifer and Art from Quality Foods for spending the day helping to cook, serve and clean up. Your help was much appreciated and we hope you enjoyed being there to see how we work together for the legion and community.

All veterans, servicemen and women and emergency service personnel were served free of charge and for a minimal $5 cost, 100 more meals were sold.

As the food was donated, we will use the proceeds to help out our needy families in the Nanaimo area at Christmas time.

We appreciate QF’s kind offer to donate and help out again next year.

Maralyn Pritchard, president to Ladies Auxiliary  Branch 257
