The Royal Canadian Legion Branch #229 in Millet made a special trip Sept. 13 to see where some well-spent community donations end up.

The Royal Canadian Legion Branch #229 in Millet made a special trip Sept. 13 to see where some well-spent community donations end up.

Branch secretary Rosella Plaquin dropped by the Pipestone Flyer office Sept. 14 to pass along information for the Legion branch’s trip to the STARS headquarters at Edmonton International Airport. “It was just a fantastic tour,” she said.

Plaquin said both the Legion Alberta Command, a major STARS sponsor, and the Millet Legion, which donates to STARS every year, help the air rescue society. STARS sent an invitation to the Millet Legion to tour their facilities.

Luckily, STARS didn’t get called out while the Legion guests were there. Plaquin said the air ambulance, once they get a call, are in and out of their base in 10 minutes.

The Millet Legion guests got the chance to meet pilots, nurses and paramedics, all the people who respond to emergencies.

The Millet Legion donates every year to STARS. Fundraising activities like bingo, casino, Nevada tickets and hall rental all make donations like that to STARS possible.
