CONVENIENTLY LOCATED

Branch #91 (Langford) houses not only the Legion itself but also the Goldstream Food Bank Society, Christmas Food Hamper, Emergency Social Services, Metchosin & South Vancouver Island Lions Clubs, Boy Scouts & Girl Guides.

In 2002 the Legion celebrated its 75th year of Service to the West Shore Communities in Victoria.  We annually donate 90K to these communities through social activities, supporting seniors, developing youth leaders as well as those who’ve suffered illness or injury arising from Military service.
Branch activities include carpet bowling, shuffleboard, pool, darts, cribbage, and a slo-pitch ball team. Seniors or regular teams, there is something for everyone.
