Royal Canadian Legion #71 – $5,000 for EKRH Endoscopy Clinic

Invermere, BC… It’s another great day for EKFH and regional health care thanks to a very generous donation from the Royal Canadian Legion Windermere District Branch #71.

The $5,000 gift from the 200+ strong service club is being directed to purchase a colonoscope for the Endoscopy Unit at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital. The Invermere gift is joining those from other Legions in the East Kootenay Zone for a total contribution of $20,000 for the equipment.

The gift to EKFH was not the only group to benefit from the fundraising efforts of the RCL #71. Donations were also directed to purchase three Defibullators for various facilities in Invermere and a specialized bed for the Veteran’s Hospital in Vancouver.
