The Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 215
215 Maxwell King Drive, East St. Paul, Manitoba, R2E 0P4
One of the principles on which The Royal Canadian Legion was founded is a solemn remembrance of Canadians who gave their lives so our nation might be free. Their most important responsibility is maintaining the tradition of Remembrance in Canada.
The Annual Poppy-Remembrance Campaign is an opportunity to remind Canadians of the men and women who died during military service. It is also the major public fund-raising blitz for the Legion--money raised from the poppy campaign can only be used for ex-service personnel and their dependents or community service projects.
Membership: All are welcome. Anyone can become a fraternal member without being a veteran. Call the Legion for more information at (204) 338-4867.
The Legion promotes community sports, the Peace Gardens program, and provides scholarships. There are regularly scheduled programs throughout the week, such as cribbage every Tuesday evening; darts on Thursday evening, a meat draw on Saturday afternoons and there is entertainment every Friday and Saturday evening.
General Members Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of February, May and October. The Annual General Meeting and election of officers is held the first Wednesday in December.
