Special Tribute to our Veterans from our Youth

The Port Moody Secondary School’s Red Cross Club has created a thank you video and a poppy photo to express our gratitude to veterans for all that they have done. Since COVID-19 has restricted many Remembrance Day activities, we hope that this video and photo will show that people are still taking the time to remember all that they have sacrificed. We hope that you can share it with local veterans. Club President, Cynthia Li and Co-President, Yingying Fang, as well as our executive team.

Quilts of Valour Presentation – Nov 4

Two beautiful quilts were presented to Paula and Christopher Hawkins on Wednesday, Nov 4th at Legion #119. The Hawkins live on Bowen island and came over for the presentation, with their daughter from Vancouver.  

The quilts are presented through Quilts of Valour, a national organization, which recognizes military service veterans. Recipients are nominated and a presentation is held at a location determined by the recipients – in this case they had heard about our legion and wanted it here – a true honour! 

Quilts are presented when a nomination is received at a time and place agreeable to recipient and the presenter.
The quilts are made by various groups and individuals.

Closure on Remembrance Day at Club #119

It is with regret that our Branch will be closed to ALL activities on Nov 11 on order from BC Command due to the quick rise of COVID cases in BC over the last week. We certainly do not want to put any people in danger of COVID exposure – especially our Veterans and Seniors.

Anyone who reserved for Nov 11 will receive a confirming call to advise of this change in plans.

Let us Remember in our own ways.
