The Royal Canadian Legion’s Volunteer Medal was presented to Anne Scott at this year’s annual Valentine Tea.

This is the first time this medal has been presented by Legion Branch 32. It was given in recognition of a lifetime of service to the Legion and Ladies Auxiliary.

With Scott's long history with the Legion, she was a natural choice.

Scott was instrumental in obtaining the professional equipment for the Legion's kitchen, and also ran the kitchen and was  primary cook for many years.

She always carried a flag in parades, originally marching, later on her scooter. Scott has been one of the Legion's best poppy taggers, standing in uniform in the early years, sitting on her scooter later.

She was a big part of the Ladies Auxiliary, holding several offices over the years, was always a big part of the Valentine's Tea and has volunteered at the thrift shop for many years.
