Years ago, there was a family whose home was burned on Mississauga Road. According to Past President Gene Reed, the Legion “rebuilt that house in 4 days.” On the right is an article from the Oakville Journal-Record that featured this story.
“Bronte Legion started the movement to aid Donovan rebuild his home but was told by the Oakville Building Department that the old structure was too far gone to be rebuilt.
After a meeting, the Legion members decided to rebuild the home on a cement base some 20 feet closer to Mississauga Street on the large farm lot the Donovans now rent.”
