The Royal British Legion hosted the 2019 District Installation of Officers dinner, where brethren heard from a representative of the Drew Nelson Life & Legacy project.

Bro Ken Lunney, from the late Bro Nelson’s own private lodge in Listullycurran, near Dromore, updated members present on the progress made in creating a lasting legacy in Bro Nelson’s memory.

The former secretary of the Grand Orange Lodge was instrumental in raising the profile of the order right up until his death and among his many achievements was the de-rating of Orange Halls across the country.

At a packed hall, members and guests enjoyed a meal served by the Regency Restaurant and entertainment from Stacey Stewart and piper Glenn Baxter. The area’s MP Bro Jim Shannon was also in attendance.
