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.
Langford Legion, Branch 91,
First, I hope all of you, our members of our Langford Legion, are enjoying the summer. While the weather has not been ideal for many outdoor activities, hopefully that improves somewhat in the coming weeks.
It is hard to believe that the branch has been closed now for almost two months. We do hear from many of you enquiring how the renovation is progressing. While more asbestos has been located and abated than anticipated, I am pleased to advise you that the renovation is on schedule. As an illustration regarding the asbestos, there were layers of flooring in some areas with multiple coatings of asbestos. We continue to review the renovation budget but as stated, we are pleased with the progress to date. We plan to add photos shortly to our website so that members can see the progress that we are making.
The executive is pursuing another facility to hold our meat draws. This also entails reviewing how we can get a Liquor license for the event. While this takes place, we will continue to offer rides to other branches for their meat draws. If you are interested in this service, please contact the branch @ 250-478-1828.
On that note, our telephone system is fully operational now so if you have any questions or require any assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.
You may have seen in the media that your Langford Legion was part of a significant announcement by the City of Langford on June 21’st with the purchase of property to expand Veterans Memorial Park. This is a very special green space for our veterans and all our members in the downtown core. It will serve all of us well now and in the future, particularly on those very special occasions like Remembrance Day.
In closing, while we all miss our branch on Station Road, we know the wait will be well worth it in the fall when a new modern facility will be there to serve its members for years to come.
