Legion volunteer Henri Wendel kneels next to one of the classic cars that will be part of the June 22 car show.

Community celebration set for Legion Week

South Surrey's Crescent Beach Legion #240 plans June 22 event

The Crescent Beach Legion #240 will be hosting a hoe down and serving up some tasty treats June 22 in honour of Legion Week.

Longtime volunteer Henri Wendel said there will be lots of family-friendly fun available all day at the event hosted, starting with the classic car show at 1 p.m.

Along with the activities, there will be food and refreshments served throughout the day by The Ladies’ Auxiliary of Branch #240.

“They’ll be flipping burgers and serving hot dogs in the afternoon and in the evening we will have barbecued chicken,” Wendel said, noting all the food will be offered by donation. “They are a big part of our organization. They really keep us going.”

The goal of the week is to invite the community to find out more about the work the Legion does, Wendel said, as well as provide an avenue to connect with local veterans.

“We want to get the community to come in and see what we do and hopefully become members, so we can keep this organization going,” he said. “We want to get as many people as possible involved from all over, including Ocean Park and White Rock.”

The night will be capped off with a hoe down featuring the music of Off the Whal at 8 p.m.

For more information about the Crescent Beach Legion, located at 2643 128 St., call the canteen at 604-535-1043 or the office at 604-535-1080.
