The Royal Canadian Legion Hall in Benito has been used by the village for more than sixty years, playing an integral role in the identity of this small but vital community. However, recent roof concerns have threatened to close the facility if not immediately repaired.

The committee has held suppers, raffles, flea markets and a variety of means to raise funds to cover the cost of repairs, with plans for on-going activities to ensure that the hall will be available in the years to come.

Recent heavy rains have hastened the need for the roof, and the Community Foundation of Swan Valley is pleased to have provided a grant to help cover the costs of these much-need repairs.
