Veterans will be among those celebrating at 78 events around B.C. to mark Legion Week.

Legion membership was once restricted to veterans and their family members, but the organizations are now open to all.

The Peachland Legion will host an open house on June 28 with a lunch, games and an evening dance.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, the Westbank Legion will also host an open house, with a barbecue, beer garden and a free meal for all first responders. Contact the legion at 250-768-4330 for more information.

The Kelowna legion has no special events planned.
