  The big news for Fall is that the Fall Supper is coming! It will take place on Sunday, October 15, 2017, from 4-7 p.m. Prices:  Adults $15, kids 7-12 yrs. $7, kids 6 and under FREE.

On October 14 there will be a work party at 9 a.m. to peel potatoes.
  Our next major event after the Fall Supper is the Hallowe'en Dance which will take place in the Club Room on Saturday, October 28, featuring Jesse Bandura, a country rock band,at 8 p.m. Come in costume -- there will be prizes! This is always a fun time!

  Dominion Command is requesting all Members’ email addresses; simply send an email to   dminfo@legion.ca. Another new thing coming down the pipe is an improved Member Application Form. Previously, the routine was to fill in the Application, pay your dues, and attend an initiation in order to become a full-fledged Legion member. Now the Initiation portion of the process has been included on the Application form, so you never have to attend at all! Of course we would all like to see you come out to the Legion and socialize, but the initiation just does not fit everyone’s schedule. This way, you can more easily become a Member.
