Almost ten decades ago a number of our residents faced the hardest moments of their lives – they lost their husbands in service to Australia in the war. It was a sad time for them and for some, the impact continues to affect them today.

We are privileged by organisations like Legacy, which are dedicated to supporting the families of those who never made it home from war. Legacy helps 48,000 families nationally through their dedicated and caring volunteers who provide personalised support for veterans’ families doing it tough.

Legacy representatives visit many of our villages to check in on the partners of war veterans. Our local representative (they refer to them as Legatees) visited our RFBI Leeton Masonic Village recently to visit the four women here who lost their partners in war. We invited residents to come along to a special morning tea which featured yummy food and a war time singalong, which everyone enjoyed.

Di spent time chatting with the four residents, who she has visited for many years in their home before they moved into the village. She now visits us on a monthly basis so those four residents can be supported.
