Founded in 1925, the Legion is Canada’s largest Veteran support and community service organization with a national reach across Canada, and branches in the U.S., Europe and Mexico. And with nearly 300,000 members of the Legion, our strength is in our numbers. Join us here in Stony Plain!
The Legion understands the importance of acknowledging the courage of those who served and still serve today. Through Remembrance initiatives, we help Canadians honour those who have make the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
Help out by running the Meat Draw or 50/50 draw. Each of these are a two hour commitment on Saturdays 3:00 -5:00 pm. See Buck Coutts to have your name added to the list for 2020.
Good Day Members
Well, things are looking up for the province with restrictions starting to be lifted, hopefully the next stages start to happen soon and we can go back to business as usual.
With the stages coming into effect, the Legion Executives will start holding formal meetings starting in June and discuss how to re-open and how to move forward once the restrictions are lifted. There is no plan as of yet to open prior to the beginning of Phase 3 due to the restrictions that will still be in place for Phase 2.
The Legion has not been idle since our closure however. Upgrades and improvements have been made behind the bar, the flowers have been planted, more organization has been done in our storage area, and the flooring has begun and will be completed by Tuesday, 26 May. With the flooring being done, we don't have access to e-mail for the next few days, but executives have been entering the Legion and checking phone messages. There has been a lot of work done, and I would like to thank all those who have been able to volunteer their time to help. The commitment, support, and dedication to our Legion by our members is what I feel, one of the key factors that give our Legion the great reputation we have.
Being that Farmer's Day is the largest event and the most popular local event for Stony Plain, the town wanted to find a way to still have one and raise the moral of those in the Stony Plain area. The town council decided to do a three day virtual Farmer's Day, In order to do this, the town has asked respected organizations and businesses to donate $150.00. From what I was told, we were the first organization thought of. The Legion would be mentioned in the Reporter, the Town of Stony Plain website, and we can advertise through our newsletter and Legion media. We will be supporting this request. We have a strong connection with our community, and the community has done so much to support us.
Included are some photos of what your Legion looks like now. Photos of the renovations will continue to be posted in the newsletter to keep you all up to date on progress.
