The 59 year-old cairn, located at the corner of the St. Emile Roman Catholic Church in Legal, was being soda blasted on Wednesday. The cairn will then be sealed before a new coating is applied. There are four plaques on the cairn: the Knights of Columbus, one for the priests, one for Town of Legal, and one from the former Legal Legion to representing veterans that served. The cairn is used on Nov. 11 for Remembrance Services but is not a cenotaph. – Lucie Roy Photo
