President Mike Brazeau of Summerland Legion #22 accepts a $24,640.80 cheque from past president Barry Newcombe as VP Donna Rutherford looks on.

The cheque is a bequest from the estate of Arthur “Mac” McCurdock, a long-time Summerland Legion member. He served with the British forces during World War II as a member of the elite SAS.

The funds will be used by the Legion to remodel the kitchen, which will be named “Mac’s Kitchen” in his memory.

The presentation took place during the branch’s general meeting March 19.
