LADIES AUXILIARY TO BC/YUKON COMMAND
In the Ladies Auxiliary to BC/Yukon Command we have 80 Ladies Auxiliaries. Each Auxiliary holds monthly meetings with the exception of July and August.
Our funding is raised through catering events, bake sales and the operation of licensed gaming events such as bingo and/or raffles. We look after veterans in hospitals such as George Derby Centre, St. Vincent’s Brock Fahrni Pavilion and the Lodge at Broadmead (Victoria) and provide Christmas gifts for the veterans in these facilities.
We visit the sick and shut-ins throughout BC/Yukon Command. We work with our Branches on various projects such as the Annual Poppy Campaign and BC Senior Games. We also help with funding the Chair of Family Practice and the Legion Foundation. We purchase tracksuits and backpacks for BC athletes attending the national Track and Field Championships and clinics.
We are always looking for new members.
