Legion Branch 122

Submitted

The Golden Legion was started May 28, 1931. It’s primary aim at that time was to support their veterans and families by making all efforts to improve lives of veterans and ex-service members. As it was then, it has continued to uphold that support, and evolve with the continued needs of our military and our veterans.

In the community, the Legion’s function also includes supporting their communities, various children’s sporting activities, and the Cadets.

Remembrance Day contests are held each year for students, who wish to submit stories, artwork, or poems and videos that reflect the sacrifices given by our military in conflicts, sacrifices that continue today, to make us a free and strong nation.

The Legion holds several types of fundraising events, through auctions, meat draws and contests. All monies derived from gaming are all returned to the community.

The Golden Legion is currently working to support their community; in the last 10 years fundraising efforts and gaming alone brought approximately $145,000 back into the community.

Activities supported by Poppy Trust Funds include: assisting needy veterans and ex-service members and their families; providing bursaries to the children and grandchildren of veterans and ex-service members; transport and related services for veterans, seniors and disable persons.

Who are our Golden Legion Members?

Our Legion members make up a wide variety of people. Our Canadian veterans and allied veterans, RCMP, members of the CPR, general public, and even a Cold War spy and author. All of these people have unique and interesting stories to tell, but more importantly is their strong comradeship and their community.

What can I do?

By joining the Golden Legion, you are helping to support your veterans and your community. Membership to the Golden Legion is $50 per year.

Our members all pledge to support and uphold the “Traditions of the Legion,” and support the Poppy Campaign. Anyone can join.

What is the benefit to me?

Serving and supporting your community and it’s veterans. You will have the opportunity to grow within this great organization. The Legion needs members who can take on the challenge of leadership. If this is where your interest lies, you can become involved by serving on the Branch Executive. You may even aspire to the National Board.

The Legion has developed a relationship with a number of corporate partners to provide products and services to its members. Only Legion members are entitled to the benefits offered.

The Golden Legion has a variety of functions weekly and throughout the year such as Friday and Saturday meet draws, Father’s Day Golf Tournaments, games, music sometimes, and we have a licensed lounge where members can enjoy dances, barbecues, entertainment and a host of other special events.
