Cobourg Legion Lines

The Royal Canadian Legion Br. 133 Cobourg would like to thank the following for all their donations of silent auction products, (and cash) services, help and support of the new building fundraiser held Oct. 15. It was a very successful event, thanks in no small way to the committee consisting of Kathy Craig, Josephine Upton, Carol Heffernan and Yolande McKinnon. Three cheers for the band, Tamin' Thunder, who played a great mix of music from blues, classic rock, ballads, to country music, and their very versatile and fantastic singer Isla.
