School trip

Sir Sam Hughes Branch 67 of the Royal Canadian Legion in Lindsay is taking a group of students in grade 7 and 8 from Central Senior, plus several veterans, on a field trip to Fort York next week.

The legion's Public relations officer Bill Neville says the students should be able to gain some perspective on what it was like to live during the war of 1812.

Tuesday's field trip cost is covered by the legion and legion members hope to take other area schools to similar events in the future.
