Become part of a proud tradition

Kerry Thomson

In 1965, my war veteran father died, leaving my mother to raise three children under seven years of age on her own. This was when Legacy stepped in and supported our family for the next 18 years.
When I saw an article in the Camden Haven Courier in 2002 asking for Legacy volunteers, I knew in my heart that it was the right time to give something back to Legacy.
