Why Legions Are Important to Our Community

They support veterans. and that includes those currently serving in the military and RCMP members, and their families.

Support is given whenever needed at no cost even if veterans or their family members are not members.

And it goes beyond that. Legions aross Canada help local Veterans, support seniors, provide for youth sports programs, raise funds for important causes, and members volunteer to help those in need throughout the community.

They’ve got really cool tanks and things out front.

And they remind us throughout the year never to forget the ultimate sacrifices made for our freedoms.

Where else can you play trivia and win prizes every Friday?

They provide a comfortable and fun place for people with similar experiences and struggles to gather

AND they have great specials and great food, with the cost staying in the Legion.
