For more than 90 years the Legion has held true to our mission.
We provide representation, advocacy and financial assistance to serving and retired Veterans and their families, free of charge, Legion member or not.
Our major responsibility is for the perpetuation of "REMEMBRANCE" in Canada through the Annual Poppy Campaign. In 2016 the Armstrong Legion contributed $45,000 to programs that benefit local youth sponsorship's, student bursaries, community organizations, local military cadet organizations and to veteran’s groups. Not bad for a Legion branch with 400 members.
Some people think of the Legion as a group of old veterans who don’t want change. This couldn’t be further from the truth. We have a total of 115 veterans. This is 27% of our total membership. We host a few veterans’ events during the year which brings them all out but only a handful of them are actively involved in the social aspect of the club. We are in fact, a very active, community minded, fun loving social group and we are determined to see the Legion continue to thrive in our community.
We continue to actively recruit members to join the Legion family. This includes non-military folks from the community as well as service personnel and their families. Two facts about membership: You don’t have to wear a uniform to belong and, you, or family members, don’t have to have been in the military to join. We’d love to have you join our Legion family.
