Navigating the pandemic has been a challenging experience. That is how Souris Legion Board Member Mark Gillis describes the last two years. The Legion did its best to keep up with the protocols opening when they could and closing when they had to based on Provincial Health Orders. At one point the Legion tried opening when meals were required to serve alcohol but that was not a successful venture.
With what looked like a long-term closure it was understandable that the manager at the time left to find other work, remarked Gillis.
The Legion itself has been fortunate during COVID. There were no big expenditures and the Legion qualified for government grants, which helped the organization to maintain status quo. However now it faces the challenge that many businesses have faced, finding staff to open again.
“We were very happy that Jason was willing to come work for us.”
