Because of public health orders, the event is limited to 50 guests. The Legion is inviting members of the RCMP, firefighters, paramedics and frontline workers.

The menu will include barbecued steak, baked potato, garlic bread, salad and dessert.

The appreciation dinner is a new event for the Legion and set to become an annual recognition of first responders.

It is not the first community-focused event, as the Summerland Legion has held other events in the past such as the Canada Day celebrations prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
