Johnson says the donation was a result of ongoing contributions received through their Poppy Fund collections. The local Legion wanted to ensure funds this year were used to purchase three new wheelchairs with some special features on them to assist those in need at Dauphin Regional Health Centre. Both the Dauphin Hospital Foundation and Prairie Mountain Health sincerely thank the Dauphin Legion Branch #20 for their heartfelt contribution.
