Ladysmith Legion’s first Light Up Ukrainian dinner was a huge success

Jeanne Seney of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 171 thanks Ladysmith for its support of the Legion's first Ukrainian dinner.

Editor:

Congratulations to the Festival of Lights committee and all of the volunteers who made the 25th anniversary such a success — a beautiful sight over the holiday season and a boost to the local economy.

The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 171 was overwhelmed by the response to our first Light Up Ukrainian dinner.

We were unsure how it would be received but can assure you from the support, we will be back next year.

There were some glitches, and we regret that we were unable to supply dinners for all who were patiently waiting. We have made a list of ways to improve and  are looking forward to Light Up 2013.

Again, thank you Ladysmith for your support.

Jeanne Seney

Ways and Means co-ordinator, Royal Canadian Legion Branch 171
