Earlier lunch hour openings, open Sunday again, and now open Wednesday!
The Port Moody Legion Branch 119’s Restaurant Management and your Branch’s Management Committee are extremely pleased to announce we’re continuing with our plans to “return to normal” with newly expanded hours.
Starting this week, we’ll once again open for lunch, will open for Sundays again, and will now be open Wednesdays!
Our updated hours are as follows:
Wednesday: 11:00 am – 10:00 pm
Thursday: 11:00 am -10:00 pm
Friday: 11:00 am – 11:00 pm
Saturday: 11:00 am – 11:00 pm
Sunday: 11:00 am – 9:00 pm
Please note, last call for the kitchen is 9:00 pm (except Sunday at 8:00 pm).
Please note, for one Sunday only (Sunday, October 3), there will not be any kitchen or food service. Sunday kitchen and food service will resume on Sunday, October 10.
While the Branch continues to adapt to hiring and staffing issues being experienced across Canada by restaurant, hospitality, and food service businesses, we’ll be temporarily adjusting our hours to focus additional service during the hours we’re most busy. Plus, we’ve heard your feedback for us to be open later, and we’re responding to that feedback! These changes will increase the level of service you experience when visiting the branch, and will help the Branch operate more efficiently during periods of significantly lower traffic.
Thursdays: 4:00 pm to 10:00 pm
Fridays: 4:00 pm to 11:00 pm
Saturdays: 4:00 pm to 11:00 pm
Closed Sunday through Wednesday
Note, these new hours are temporary; the Management Committee is striving to return to a fully-opened Branch with typical hours (open all week for lunch/weekend brunch and staying open later) as soon as possible. Watch your Branch 119 Newsletter for those updates in the near future.
Adjusted Meat Draw hours on Fridays and Saturdays On account of our new temporary hours, Meat Draw tickets will start to be sold 30 minutes later, starting at 4:00 pm.
Members, visitors, and the general public will be required to show their British Columbia COVID-19 Vaccine Passport upon entering the club starting Thursday, September 16
Following the mandates set forth by the BC Provincial Health Officer, Port Moody Branch 119 will be enforcing the requirement for all guests of the Branch to show their COVID-19 Vaccine Passport starting Thursday, September 16 (our first day open following the mandate coming into effect Monday, September 13).
Members and guests are advised that additional staff will be stationed at the Branch’s front door to facilitate the checking of Vaccine Passports. Anyone without a valid Vaccine Passport will not be permitted to enter the Branch. Per the Provincial Health Order, both the electronic/phone passport as well as the alternative paper passport will be accepted.
Between September 16 and October 23, partially vaccinated Members and guests (those individuals with only one shot of approved COVID-19 vaccine) and fully vaccinated Members and guests will be permitted to enter the Branch. From October 24 onward (while the passport mandate is in effect), only fully vaccinated individuals with a current Vaccine Passport will be permitted to enter the Branch.
During this time, all other Provincial Health Orders – including the standing mask mandate – will continue to be in effect.
For more information on the Vaccine Passport, as well as guidance on how to access your own Vaccine Passport, visit the Province of British Columbia’s page here: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/vaccinecard.html .
Poppy Fund donations in-part fund local Port Moody cultural non-profit infrastructure
Members of the Port Moody Legion Branch 119 Acting Management Committee were pleased to join Port Moody Station Museum Executive Director Jim Millar to see the museum’s new archive shelves, made possible in-part by the Branch’s $5,000 donation to the museum’s not-for-profit foundation.
As part of its mandate to help assist veterans and improve the lives of Canada’s former and currently-serving servicemen and servicewomen, the Legion’s Poppy Fund also funds local initiatives, such as the Port Moody Station Museum, whose programming features notable First World War artifacts and historical recreations.
