Help the Legion Secure Federal Funding
Dominion President Thomas D. Irvine, CD, has sent a letter to all MPs requesting help in seeking accountability from the government to provide its promised financial assistance, in addition to an op-ed piece recently published in The Guardian. But after months of inaction from the federal government, the Legion is launching a letter-writing campaign to secure financial support for Branches impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Together, we can ensure the Government of Canada follows through on its promised assistance for the Legion. Please send our MP – Mr. Philip Lawrence your letter of support for our legion that was emailed to you. Thank you
To the Youth in our Community. Every year the Royal Canadian Legion provides 2 competitions. The first one being the Poster, Poems and Essay contest for Remembrance Day. The second one is the Public Speaking in February. We hope that students will again wish to participate in these events. Materials will be going out to the schools in our area. However, with these uncertain times the format may have to change and students may wish to work from home, (Last year one of our students came in first with their colour poster and had their work displayed in the government buildings in Ottawa).. In this case they may come to Branch 100, 25 Park St. to get the information they would need to participate, which would include their registration form and rules of the contest. Phoning 613 – 475-1044 would let them know when they could come and pick up their package of information. Hope that you would consider participating.
