Legion to benefit from fundraiser

The tank at Joe's which is being auctioned off.

Joe’s Sporting Goods and Surplus is changing their business model, which is good news for the local Royal Canadian Legion.

Dave Edgar said the switch from surplus to canoes, kayaks and paddle boards has been in the works for a while.

With the switch comes the requirement to get rid of the iconic tank which sat in the surplus section of the store.

Edgar thought it would be a great idea to auction it off and donate the funds to a local charity. In this case he chose the Royal Canadian Legion.

“We are also Auctioning off our Famous Army Tank. It comes in three pieces and is 7ft by 7ft by 5ft. All proceeds from the Auction will be Donated! Starting Bid is $200…. and Go!” said the Facebook post.

As of the 18th the current bid was $300, the auction will end on the 24th according to Edgar with only a couple days remaining to place a bid.
