There is light at the end of trusteeship for Langford Legion.

The books at the Langford Legion have been the responsibility of The B.C. Yukon Command of The Royal Canadian Legion since January.

“It’s a big branch with a housing unit. It’s an operation far more complex than a branch with 100 members,” said Inga Kruse, executive director of the B.C. Yukon Command. “(The Langford Legion) is a highly complex business.”

While everything is still being sorted out, Kruse is confident in the future for the Langford Legion.

“We never invest in something if we intend to close it. It’s the whole reason we are investing in this. I have no worries about the future of the branch,” Kruse said. “When you run an organization with volunteers you need to give them some help. I am so confident with the members.”

Kruse explained the Command would like to see new members join the Langford Legion which is always looking for volunteers.

“In America the legions are falling apart, but here in B.C. we are going to be OK,” Kruse said.

To join or volunteer call the Langford Legion at 250-478-1828.
