HONOURING SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN AT BRANCH #91
The Royal Canadian Legion is a non-profit Canadian ex-service veterans organization founded in 1925, with more than 400,000 members worldwide.
Happy January to all of you. Following up on my recent message in December, I want to advise that commencing January 1, 2022, we will be making some changes to our pricing of drinks. We have not increased the pricing of draught and bottled products for some time and with the wholesale prices rising, we are left with no other option but to adjust our own prices. We have kept these changes to a minimum by increasing from .05 to .25.
As you no doubt know, food costs have also increased dramatically due to a number of factors including the ongoing pandemic and transportation costs. Commencing this month, January, we also have no choice but to adjust our menu pricing to reflect the added costs the branch has absorbed.
This month we will be changing our system over to a two-tier pricing system. We are also considering two-tier pricing for alcoholic beverages - one for the members and the other for the guests of our branch. While this would be an obvious benefit to our members, hopefully it would encourage our guests to consider becoming members so that they can enjoy all the benefits our branch offers.
Finally, the staff have noticed an increase in requests for glasses and water at the bar recently. Needless to say, there are costs involved for the branch when this occurs, so we would remind everyone to please be considerate of this when water is requested. Needless to say, we would never deny a request for water particularly if it was required for medication.
In closing, as always, if you have any concerns or questions with these upcoming changes, please do not hesitate to contact the office. When these changes are implemented, the staff are simply doing their jobs and providing a service so if you have not already done so, take the time to say, “Thanks”. It means so much during this ongoing difficult period of time.
