Royal Canadian Legion Colour Party & Sergent-at-Arms

Colour Parties lead Legion Parades, play a prominent role in Remembrance Ceremonies and opening Legion meetings and Conventions

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.​​

 

Sergent-at-Arms for Sir Sam Hughes Branch 67 Royal Canadian Legion. Comrade Dave St Denis.

Poppy Report

Please honour your commitment to participate in the poppy campaign this year.

Poppy Report

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.

Yours in comradeship

John Sherman

2nd Vice President/Poppy Chairman

Kitchen Chairman Report

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.

 

Yours in comradeship
