New Accessibility Renovations

Posted by toledo.legion on September 24, 2019 at 3:35 PM Comments comments (0)

As Many of you know, the legion has been undergoing renovations this summer. We were happy to receive  Enabling Accrssibility Funding  (EAF) to upgrade our washrooms and ramping to make the legion more accessible to handicapped patrons. We now have new washrooms for men and women with an additional transgender/handicapped/ baby change washroom in the middle. These washrooms are located in the same place as the old ones off the main hall.

As one thing leads to another, we are wrapping up the back room upgrades. This area is located at the back of the main hall and is an excellent location for smaller venues such as birthday and anniversary parties, small meetings and events. The upgrades  include a handicapped washroom, ramping and fresh decor. Other upgrades to the building include handicapped door buttons for automatic door operation, new entry way doors and a door leading to the outdoor horseshoe pits off the main hall. 

Come and check out the new look! Pictures comming soon!

What was our exciting news?

The Toledo Legion has recieved a generous grant to upgrade the kitchen facilities this year. MPP Steve Clark and Trillium representative Laura Woods were on hand last week to present Legion president Greg Williams and Vivki Downey with the official award. See the article in the Smiths Falls Record News http://www.emcsmithsfalls.ca/20120719/news/Toledo+Legion+kitchen+to+get+drastic+face+lift+this+fall and on the home page. Photos can be viewed in the Photo Gallery. The Legion hopes to start the project in the fall. The upgraded facilities will be a perfect place to hold community events, weddings, parties, conferences and workshops.
