National Legion Week
VIDEO: The Royal Canadian Legion is pleased to announce its first National Legion Week taking place this year from September 17-23. The week-long event is designed to help educate visitors about the excellent work their local branch does to serve and support military and RCMP Veterans, and how their branch contributes to the well-being of the community itself. It is also a chance to invite new members, and new volunteers.
“This is an exciting time for the Legion and our more than 1,300 branches,” says Bruce Julian, Dominion President. “Our members have planned events, open houses, and displays. They will undoubtedly be welcoming new faces including Veterans, and we all look forward to having their support and hearing their ideas.”
Legion Branches are the cornerstone of communities across Canada, and provide one of the largest volunteer bases in the country.
“Legions serve a very important role in our communities throughout Simcoe-Grey” said MPP Brian Saunderson. “They provide support services for our veterans, young and old, promote Remembrance, provide local services and supports and serve as a community hub every day” Saunderson added.
