City Legions Talking Amalgamation

The legions in Saint John are talking about a possible amalgamation. 

Only two of the 5 legions in Saint John have buildings, they are Branch 69 on the west side and Branch 53 on the east side.

District Commander Larry Lynch tells CHSJ News says the legions members have been declining in recent years.

He says in 2006 they had about 1700 legion members and at the end of 2012 they had about 1100.

Lynch says they plan to have further discussions in the new year about merging into one.
