A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Langford Legion, Branch 91
Much has occurred since my last message to you in early May. On a positive note and as you no doubt know by now, Premier Horgan and the Provincial Health Authority announced the re-opening plan for the province on May 25th. The great news is that our Langford Legion is once again open to serve you. Assuming B. C. residents continue to get vaccinated, it should not be long before we are able to offer all the services that we can, including the indoor activities like darts, shuffleboard and pool that have been so missed these past months. Hopefully on June 15th we move to Phase Two of the provincial re-opening and that will be good news for us. Finally, following the Labour Day weekend, we sincerely hope that we are able to provide all the regular services that the legion has for the Westshore communities as we move to Phase Four. We will continue to keep you updated as we progress during the coming weeks.
Also, during our closure we did succeed in acquiring a patio license. We opened it on May 18th and as the days become sunnier and warmer, please stop by for a beverage or something to eat as we would love to see you again, either inside or out!
As you may have seen or read, the City of Langford and the Island Corridor Foundation recently announced a redevelopment plan for Station Avenue. This includes the area directly across from the legion which we have utilized as a parking area for years. While we are pleased that Station Avenue is being improved, the potential loss of parking is a significant issue for us. While we have been planning for the modernization of our legion, we have been in discussions with the Island Corridor Foundation to the point where we were advised that the City of Langford had signed a thirty year lease agreement for use of the land. Unfortunately, this announcement came as a surprise to us. We continue to have many questions but we will keep you advised as this development progresses.
At the risk of being repetitive, I want to sincerely thank all of you who have continued to support us during the past fifteen months. Like many other businesses and organizations, it has been a difficult period of time. As we slowly move back to some normalcy, we sincerely hope that we see many more of you in the coming weeks. Your executive, staff and all the volunteers are so looking forward to seeing you and serving you once again at your Langford Legion.
