Repairs at Goderich Legion

Goderich | by Peter Jackson  

Repairs to Royal Canadian Legion in Goderich coming along three months after tornado.

Repairs to the Royal Canadian Legion building in Goderich are coming along three months after the tornado hit.

Branch 109 President Paul Thorne tells us that while some of the damage took a while to fix the organization was lucky that it wasn't much worse.

The Kingston Street building is close to the location of the 19th-Century Opera house that had to be demolished.

Thorne points out that some of the damage was significant but the Legion was able to re-occupy some parts of the building within a month of the storm.

He hopes to have repairs completed by late winter or early spring.

The worst-affected part of the Legion branch was the roof which lost a number of shingles and some of the sheathing.

Thorne tells us they were able to do emergency repairs to allow quick occupancy of the building.

The heating, ventilation and air-conditioning units on the roof lost some covers and had to be cleaned but otherwise were still functional.
