Legion raises prices on meals

So you can see that $15 is not that much, especially as your dinner includes GST

Editor, The Times:

It is with regret that we at the Clearwater-Vavenby Legion 259 must raise the price of our on-going dinners and barbeques from $12 to $15, effective Jan. 1, 2016.

The costs of food products have increased substantially in the last year, as you might have noticed when you shop for your home. I have had meals in many places in Clearwater, Kamloops, etc and have seen a great increase in the basic meals. By the time you get your bill, including coffee and deserts, it will run you $25 and up.

Here at our Legion you get coffee, main meal, meat, potatoes, vegetable, dinner roll, salads, pickles, plus desserts (and if you are still hungry you can always return for a second helping). So you can see that $15 is not that much, especially as your dinner includes GST.

Our dinners are the local Legion’s main source of revenue to pay our bills and for the upkeep of the building. As it is now, many of our members are donating private funding, either by purchasing food items or donating desserts. I thank you all very much for attending our dinners and hope you will continue to do so.

Joe Short, president
