Fall Fest fundraiser in October

The Harriston Royal Canadian Legion Branch 296  is planning a Fall Fest the first weekend of October.

The group recently applied to the town to extend its liquor licence to the Legion parking lot.

The event runs on Oct. 4 from noon to 9pm.

Council has no concerns with allowing the request.

Mayor David Anderson not­ed the Legion had recently held a garage sale “and the traffic was incredible.”

Council subsequently supported a request from the same Legion that Sept. 20 to 26 be proclaimed as Legion Week.

Anderson said the endorsement supports the Legion in its proclamation.
