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 2021.
An update from your Membership Chair:
- We currently have 463 members paid up for 2021.
- There are 133 Ordinary, 237 Associate and 74 Affiliate Members.
- The Branch has 16 Life Members, those 16 members add up to 682 years of service to the Royal Canadian Legion!! Not bad, eh?
I have done up the "2021 Years of Service" for the Branch and will post along with the "2020 Years of Service" as you may have missed them last year, a few were given out at our Jan. and Feb. General Meetings that we were allowed to have early in the year.
Although not at a 5 year increment I would like to say Congrats!! to 68 years for Dave Waddell, 59 years for Peter Gosselin and 58 years for Hervy Watson.
For the most part I think everyone has been contacted regarding dues, some members want to wait until we open and we are all hoping for that asap. If you would like to pay before hand you can contact me, call or text 780-908-5672, email firstname.lastname@example.org
