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.
A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Greetings from your Langford Legion, Branch 91 again. As we turn another page of the calendar, we are now well into our autumn season. This past summer has been so unique for all of us and one that we will never forget. And as I have mentioned before, your Langford Legion has had to cope with many challenges in the “new normal” manner in the way in which we serve our members. Fortunately, thanks to our dedicated volunteers and staff, we continue to operate and provide the many valued services for you.
We are very pleased to announce the development of our new website which is now available for you to see. We plan to keep it updated with all events and branch functions on a regular basis and we are confident that you will find it much more “user friendly.” I do want to sincerely thank Cassandra Paxton, a dedicated branch volunteer and our recording secretary, for her efforts with this project.
You will note that the new website has a segment dedicated to our new building project. We are very pleased that we have made significant progress during these difficult months with this major initiative so please take note of further detailed information about our building plans through e-mails and on the website in the coming days.
Our annual Poppy Campaign will also be different this year due to Covid-19. We are still in need of volunteers so if you would like to help, please call 250-478-1828, leave a message and we will return your call as soon as possible. Our planning for the November 11th celebration is still underway. There will be no parade and guests will be limited. If you would like a wreath placed it will take place prior to the ceremony. More information will be forthcoming on our website and in the Gazette soon.
I would also like to remind you that it is that time of year for your membership renewal. As you know, your legion’s success depends solely on you, our valued members here on the Westshore. So if you are coming to the branch for a meal, a beverage or a game of pool, please take just a few minutes to renew your membership for 2021. And as well, you can renew your membership online but we would love to see you in the branch!
In closing, I want to thank all of you who have been coming to your branch and utilizing our services. Again, our continued success and ability to serve our members and community depends on each of us to do our part by taking advantage of the services the branch provides.
On behalf of the Langford Legion Executive, thank you again for your ongoing support and we sincerely hope that we see each of you soon!
