Meeting salutes Legion's history
In honour of Remembrance Day, the history of the island's
Royal Canadian Legion and Ladies' Auxiliary will be the focus
of the November 8 Salt Spring Historical Society meeting.
Kathryne Holm will lead the presentation on Branch 92, which
is in its 75th year of serving veterans and the island.
"In 1947, the Ladies' Auxiliary of Branch 92 was established
to help World War II veterans get started again in their home
communities," explains a press release. "The hardships
of veterans were significant, and the Legion and its auxiliary
were there to help."
The Royal Canadian Legion's mission is to serve veterans,
ex-service persons and their dependents, as well as supporting
numerous community activities.
Everyone is welcome to the meeting, which begins at 2 p.m.
at Central Hall. Tea, coffee, cookies and informal discussion
