Special Request:
Plan to give yourself a Safe Winter ... please consider the following invitations:

a. Avoid accidental falls on slippery walkways, roadways and parking lots. Treat yourself to a pair of easy slip-on (i.e. slip on over your footwear) grippers - make them a priority if you don't already have a pair, and if you're not sure when you go out, please wear them!

b.Ask for help with shovelling snow - particularly if you're not used to that level of exercise. We're all used to thinking we can do it, and that problems happen to other people - please don't wish you'd done it differently.

c.Make sure your vehicle is in good working order. Check the wear on your snow tires, always carry some blankets and snacks in case you need to keep warm and wait for help to come, and keep a safety triangle and flashlight handy. A small shovel may be useful! 

 

Remember, you may need these things, OR you may be the first person to come upon someone who does.

 

The Chester Basin Legion Everett Branch No. 88 is named in remembrance of F/76600, Trooper Everett Eugene Borgald, the son of Robie and Gladys Irene Borgald, of Halifax, NS. Everett was born in Chester Basin, Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia on September 14, 1920. He enlisted in the Canadian Army at Halifax on December 30, 1942. Trooper Borgald embarked for Britain on July 16, 1943. He was posted to the Royal Montreal Regiment on August 13, 1943, and to the Governor General's Foot Guards on March 19, 1944. He landed in France for service with the British Columbia Regiment on July 23, 1944. He was killed in action on August 23, 1944. His Service Awards included the 1939-45 Star, the France and Germany Star, the Defence Medal, the Canadian Volunteer Service Medal with clasp, and the War Medal 1939-45. His remains have been laid to rest in the Bretteville-sur-Laize Canadian War Cemetery in Calvados, France. He was 23. Everett Borgald's cousin, Rosemarie (Borgald) Perkins, travelled to France in September, 2009, and visited the Bretteville-sur-Laize Cemetery.
