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.
Will be keeping an eye on the situation and opening when safe to do so.
Well, it's mid-July and we're still in Phase 2. I thought for sure we'd be on Phase 3 by now, and be closer to opening the Legion.
If there is still no talk from the Provincial Government by the next executive meeting, we will re-assess all the factors, and pro's and con's to potentially opening the Legion while under Phase 2. This does not mean that an opening date is in sight, the health and safety of our members is still the most important factor in our decision making.
Another major factor to consider is if it's feasible to open. If the overhead costs become greater than the income, it doesn't make sense to be open.
Regardless of what phase we are in when we do eventually open, as long as distancing rules are in place we will have to rely on volunteers to fill the different tasks required in order for us to follow the guidelines set out by the province. These tasks, as well as the discussion at the next executive meeting will be posted in the newsletter and our Facebook page after that meeting.
After these talking points have been posted, I would appreciate feedback by our members. The executives are the officers of the Legion, but we work for the members. I feel the overall decision of the members as to opening or not under the guidelines should be part of the decision making process. If the majority of our members accept all the factors, we have the volunteers to do the tasks, and it's feasible to open, then an opening date can be discussed. On the other hand, if the majority of our members don't feel it safe or feasible to open, then we will remain closed until such a time that it is.
