Our Journey

Since 1931, Branch 119 of the Royal Canadian Legion has been an integral part of the Port Moody community. Nestled in the heart of the old city centre on Clarke Street, our branch has been a beacon of camaraderie and service for over nine decades.

In 1955, we celebrated a milestone as we welcomed the New Year in our old location (pictured below), despite the absence of a floor! Fast forward 60 years, and we commemorated another memorable New Year’s Eve bash in 2015. This time, however, it marked the beginning of a new chapter as we prepared to embark on a journey of redevelopment. Both occasions were filled with boundless optimism and a deep sense of community spirit, reflecting our unwavering commitment to a bright future while honouring our cherished past.

As the seasons changed in 2015, so did the landscape of Port Moody. The once-empty corner of Kyle and Clarke Streets blossomed into a vibrant hub, adorned with apartments, retail spaces, and our brand-new Club 119 facility, featuring the illustrious Chip Kerr Lounge. Through it all, Branch 119 remained a beacon of resilience and unity, leading the region in membership retention even in the face of adversity. We are extremely proud of our history in Port Moody, but also recognize that we have a wonderful purpose-built legion to carry our legacy forward.

Poppy & Remembrance Day November 11th

Armistice Day or “Remembrance Day” as it has come to be known, originated following the end of the First World War. The Armistice agreement was signed between Germany and the Allied Forces in Paris on Monday, 11 November 1918 at 0500 hours. The ceasefire went into effect at 1100 hours the same morning. The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. The first Armistice Day was observed in 1919. On November 6th, in the House of Commons, the then acting Prime Minister of Canada, Sir George Foster read a message from King George V.

The Poppy fund

The Poppy Campaign is very much a local initiative, conducted by Legion Branches in cities, towns and communities across the country. Donations collected during the Poppy Campaign are held in Trust at the branch level to directly support Veterans and their families within their community and to help ensure Canadians ‘never forget’. The Poppy fund helps members of our local community every year & Legion #119 is committed to bringing these funds to use for worthy eligible causes.

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
