Nominations being held today for executive members at the Legion in Millet

Millet's Royal Canadian Legion is hoping this weekend won't be the last time they celebrate Remembrance Day.

The community service organization voted against shutting down last month, but President Joffre Plaquin says in order to stay in business they need new, young blood.

The Legion has 58 members at the moment but according to Plaquin only about a dozen are active on executive committees.

Starting today they're holding nominations for executive positions and elections will be held on December 12.

If they don't have enough executive members they'll have to re-examine whether or not they can keep the Legion's doors open.

They organize a number of events including the Remembrance Day Services in Millet and the town's No Stone Left Alone campaign.

They meet on the second Wednesday of each month.

Anyone interested in joining the Legion can call Plaquin at 780-387-7433.  (JSL/THE ONE NEWS)
