A group of local residents who play pickup hockey in Haliburton, under the name Haliburton Old Guys, presented a cheque for $500 to the Haliburton Legion Jan. 10, proceeds from the group’s winter fundraiser.

The money will go towards the Legion’s elevator program.

Legion executives feel the installation of an elevator is necessary to improve accessibility throughout the building.

Derrick Moore, sergeant in arms, said they hope to wrap up their fundraising initiative later this year, with the installation of an elevator coming in 2024.
