“The Lions Club of Fort St. John began by donating 18 chairs, window treatment, LED accent lighting and an electronic photo frame,” a press release from the Legion Branch reads.
There are currently six tables open for eight pictures of veterans on each, all of which will be black and white with the name of the veteran and the regiment they served printed underneath.
Sponsorship at each table for companies cost $750 for a double logo table and $1,500 for a single logo table.
“Now as more people hear about the project and see the tables, the more they want the veteran in their family to be honoured on a tabletop,” the legion goes on to say. “The project has a waiting list (of) families who want their family veterans’ picture included.”
The tables will be manufactured using “granicrete” with a decorative finish that will cover the pictures and logos to preserve them.
If you’re interested in becoming a sponsor or if you have a family member you’d like to commemorate, contact Marilyn Hunter at 250 262 9627, the legion at 250 785 3917, or email [email protected]
The legion says the honoured veteran doesn’t necessarily need to be a resident of Fort St. John to be a part of the table project.
