Ethel Black - Ethel has a 'can do' attitude who never says no! When asked 37 years ago for help from the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #23 Ladies Auxiliary, she said yes and hasn't looked back. She has dedicated the last five years to the organization as the Sargent at Arms. She is always willing to lend a hand to her fellow members and is active with organizing all of their events and needs, ranging from visiting community members who are sick, to waitressing their monthly breakfasts, to sewing all of their curtains, Ethel is eager to pitch in. In fact, she only missed one monthly breakfast in 37 years (due to a broken ankle). At 85 years young, she is a pillar in the Ladies Auxiliary and is well-respected in the community.
