THE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE And Trustees

Help us keep more of our gaming funds: Member action needed

Emails and letters to MLA Rick Glumac requested

The following message quotes portions of a letter on behalf of Veronica Brown, BC/Yukon Command Executive Director.

Dear Comrades,

Last August we asked members to send letters to their local MLA’s for support in a request to keep a larger percentage of gaming funds.

We gained a lot of support and momentum with that letter writing campaign and we received indications that our request was going to be considered.  Then the election was called, focus was shifted and we seemed to be lost in the shuffle.

We are encouraging our members to reach out to their MLAs once again to ask for support for our initiative to help branches keep a larger percentage of their gaming funds to ensure their sustainability now and in the future.

You are encouraged to send your letter by mail or drop it off at the constituency office as hard copies seem to capture more attention.  If you are unable to send hard copies please do email, the important thing is to have your voice heard.

Respectfully,

Veronica Brown

An Important Announcement Regarding our Re-Opening

Closure in response to COVID-19 extended to March 4

The following is a message on behalf of Port Moody Branch 119’s Management Committee President Brenda Millar, and Trustees David Fletcher and Peter Salmon.

I know you are anxious to know how Club 119 at the Legion plans to move forward after Dr. Bonnie Henry’s recent announcement. As many of you are aware the restrictions on public gatherings has been extended until February 5, 2021. The current direction the Pandemic has taken in British Columbia, Canada and world is still quite grim. Although vaccinations have become available for some, there is still a lot of progress to be made. As a result, the difficult decision was made to continue the suspension of the bar and kitchen operations until at least March 4th, 2021

We are hopeful that by then the situation will be more favourable, active cases significantly lower, public health restrictions lifted or relaxed and with better weather people will be more comfortable interacting.  We look forward to the re-opening and seeing you all.   During this closing period we have been working hard to complete renovations to allow for a smother operation overall.

The Legion portion of the business is still available to support Veterans and their families. If you or your family requires assistance please contact Brenda Millar at 604-931-5193.

We appreciate your patience and support. Take care and be safe.
