A donation of $30,000 was made to the Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation towards the purchase of a vital piece of cardiac equipment from the Courtenay Legion’s Poppy Trust Fund. This gift will support the purchase of the echocardiogram – a heart ultrasound that will enable cardiologists to accurately assess and diagnose the best path of patient care.
Over the past 23 years, the Courtenay Legion has contributed over $250,000 to support healthcare in our community. The generosity of the Legion has positively impacted areas of care such as physical rehabilitation services, long-term care, heart and lung testing, surgical services, the emergency department and cancer care.
The Legion’s generous support of the echocardiogram – one of the most widely used diagnostic imaging modalities in cardiology at the Comox Valley Hospital will provide superior cardiac imaging to 140 patients each week – more than 6,500 annually.

Here is where you will find dartboards, two huge pool tables, a dance floor, comfy chairs, televisions,
areas to play Euchre, Crib, or your favourite game or activity perhaps - please tell us! There is also a covered
patio to socialize and on those days the BBQ is out, the added ambience of those lazy hazy days of summer!

It has a beautiful dance floor, a stage, lower and upper level, and a HUGE kitchen!
