100+ Women Who Care Hanna are pleased to announce that the Hanna Legion was the recipient of their second quarterly donation. The gift amounted to $5,125. Dianne Lance and John Akkermans spoke about the renovations the Legion members have undertaken recently and the projects yet to come to keep the building in good repair. The duo told the 100+ Women Hanna members that the next project they need to complete is the replacement of the upstairs windows and doors on the south side of the hall. They had already received a quote from Anchor Glass in the amount of $6,625.
The main source of revenue for the Hanna Legion Hall is rent. That said, they donate the hall for use by many organizations and needs. Minor sports such as soccer and 4-H have been recipients of this generosity and more recently, the Parkinson’s support group. Poppy Fund monies cannot be used for building renovations and can only be used for support of veterans and families.
Some of the recent projects completed in the Hall include:
Reroof the kitchen – Hanna Building Supplies $4000
Replaced heating boiler – Sinclair Plumbing – $35,000
Paint main floor hall. Volunteer labour – $480
Windows in upstairs bar – Anchor Glass – $5000
Refinish Mainfloor – Bill’s Building $11,000
Dianne and John pointed out that all of the money spent on renovations so far has been spent locally.
