Posted on Thursday, May 18, 2017 20:28 PM

The Bridgewater branch of the Royal Canadian Legion is getting ready to welcome some 250 members from across the province and beyond.

Along with celebrating their 90th anniversary, they're hosting the biennial provincial convention.

President Sam Collicutt says it's no easy task.

"My arrangements committee have been working on this for the past two years, since we were selected as the next hosting branch."

Over the course of the weekend Legion members will start planning the next two years.

Collicutt says they're mission is to help veterans and their families with the community as a whole.
