The Fall of the Legion Empire!


legionI have stated several times that the legions are failing, branches closing membership dropping. Here on PEI we have Branch One forced to sell their building and then rent back the basement. In Summerside the legion had to sell their building and then rent back the basement. Summerside and Miscouche branches share the same manager, unable to afford one for each. The list goes on, but what is the Dominion Command doing about it??? The latest branch to close its door is the Leamington Ontario Branch.

Royal Canadian Legion Branch 84 in Leamington, Ont., officially closes today.Members made the decision in a meeting earlier this week.Branch president Bob McKee says an aging and declining membership base contributed to the legion’s closure.McKee says all outstanding poppy and charity money left with the local branch will remain in Leamington.McKee says the account has about $18,000 in it.It’s still uncertain who will be responsible for any Remembrance Day ceremonies in the community.

But don’t forget to order your lovely 150 legion medal for only $25, that will help save the legion, but add a nice set of plastic earrings embossed with the Poppy to the order, that will help even more.

A lot of clever minds at Dominion working on smart ways to save the Royal Canadian Legion don’t you think??????? I’m not worried are you???

God Bless and keep reading
