Colour Parties lead Legion Parades, play a prominent role in Remembrance Ceremonies and open Legion meetings and Conventions. They command attention and remind us all
of the Legion’s commitment to Canada's Veterans.
The Royal Canadian Legion has a long history of loyalty and community service, and one of the most visible signs of that is the presence of Colour Parties at most Legion events from the Branch level up to and including Dominion Command.
Members of the Colour Party wear full Legion Dress and carry a set of flags that represent the Legion and the principles on which the Legion is founded.

Please honour your commitment to participate in the poppy campaign this year.
This year the Branch raised $42,000.00 as compared to $44,000.00 last year. This is due to less participation from members honouring their pledge to participate in the annual poppy campaign, which we are all are aware that the funds we raise go to support our Veterans and their families during their time of need.
Because of this we will be setting up a phoning committee to call members and offer a time frame for you to honour your commitment to participate in the poppy ca next year.
Busy, busy, busy. The kitchen has been extremely busy these last few months of last year. With our kitchen cooking 18 turkeys to accommodate the Christmas lunches and dinners which have been booked with our branch.
I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge the many hours the volunteers contributed to our success and I thank them for their dedication to our branch. Our cook (Mike Hensman) is going to write a book on how to cook turkeys, coming out soon in the New Year.
Appointments to the various committees for the 2018 – 2019 term have been made and I am pleased to accept the position of Bar Chairman for another term.
The Canteen bar continues to be busy as always. The Vimy and Lounge bars also bring in revenue during the various functions held in those rooms.
We will once again be hosting three more deck parties: Canada Day, Sunday, July 1st; Civic Holiday, Monday, August 6th; and Labour Day, Monday, September 3rd. These events are from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. They feature music by some of your favourite bands and a bar-b-que.
I would like to thank our Bar Stewards for a job well done in the past year and looking forward to the same again this year.
A note of thanks to our sales representative Joe Hawley and Molson Brewery for the recent donation of a new TV for our canteen.
