Love at the Legion


It was a night of love at the Manotick Legion during their Valentine’s Day Dinner and Dance last week, as longtime members Allan Haan and Margery Toner wed. Manotick Legion Padre Rev. Martin Carnahan performed the ceremony for the couple. The best man was Allan's son, Tom Haan, and the maid of honor was Margery's daughter Tammie Metcalfe. More than 100 guests from as far away as Prince Edward Ilsand and British Columbia celebrated with Allan and Margery.

The generosity of the Manotick community was evident at the recent Shiverfest activities in January. MVCA organizes the annual winter festival to provide an opportunity for area residents to enjoy time with friends and family, with many free activities.  Via the purchase of chili ballots, raffle and trivia tickets and various donation boxes, the community contributed $2,400 to ROSSS for its ongoing programs. Thank you to all the local merchants who contributed. Pictured are (l-r): Allan Haan, Shiverfest Committee, Courtney Rock, ROSSS, Grace Thrasher, MVCA Treasurer.
