We, at the Port Moody Legion #119, are very proud of the efforts and respect that we put forth to honour our Veterans and their families on this very special day of Remembrance. Although we are currently closed for redevelopment, we must and shall continue the tradition to mark this very important day.
Your Executive Committee, along with the Port Moody City Staff, are currently putting plans together to present the 2016 November 11th Day of Remembrance. Final details will be passed on once all arrangements have been made.
Let us take this opportunity to extend an invitation for you to attend our upcoming event for our Poppy Drive and Nov 11th Act of Remembrance and ceremonies, on behalf of the Port Moody Legion, our Veterans and families and our Community.
On October 28th to Nov.11th the Port Moody Legion Branch #119 will be Poppy Tagging in our Community.
Joining as volunteer taggers are our local Cadet Corps and members of the Legion. Due to our large community support, poppies will be available at many businesses throughout the Tri-City area.
The Poppy Campaign provides Canadians with the opportunity to Remember and honour our fallen Comrades by providing a Poppy to be worn to pay tribute to their sacrifices, deeds and accomplishments.
All funds raised go directly to Veterans and their families - to the Legion Foundation - to special programs for Veterans with special physical needs - PTSD care and research - Veteran Care Homes - and provides bursaries, and much more. Please support this national campaign and give for those who have given so much to us.
If you wish to volunteer to help with this campaign, please contact the office at 604-936-1312, Poppy Chair Margaret Walline 778-989-8404 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us on our website legion119.ca. Your participation is your duty and is greatly appreciated.
You can still renew your 2016 membership. Even though we are temporarily closed for redevelopment we count on your support so we can continue to contribute to the Legion's various programs that help our Veterans. We also donate to youth and sports, rehab hospitals and more. Volunteers are still working to maintain our Branch.
Please mail your renewal cheque ($58.00 regular and $48.00 seniors/disabled) to:
RCL Br. 119 at 2513 Clarke St. Port Moody, BC V3H 1Z3.
We will mail your new membership ASAP.
Please ensure we have your correct address and contact information. In order to cut costs and save trees, we are trying to keep you informed via email and face book. We are harvesting email addresses to better be able to communicate with our membership during this redevelopment phase of our branch. Please add your email address to the list which will be available at all meetings or email our office at email@example.com
Alternately, you can go to our website at legion119.ca and click on "Contact Us" and send us a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Temporary office # 604-936-1312
