Hudson Legion latest news

July 14, 2014

It's been a busy weekend. Friday started it off with a great meal. No one went home hungry with the amount of food on the plates. There also was a going away party for Tony and Jenn Marquis who are moving away to Barrie, Ontario. They have been very good members in this club through various contributions both curling and socially. They were also behind the campaign to bring shoes to the children in Columbia. We will be sad to see them go. Good luck to both of you.

The next dinner is on Friday, July 25 when Jim, Cody and Bob are back with another Steak BBQ. Reserve early at 450-458-4882. The dinner dates in August are Aug. 15 and 29.

Blueberries  and cream are being served at the farmers market on Thursday. See you there.

    Please contact Barbara Robinson (robinson.barbara@sympatico.ca) before the end of day on Wednesday, July 23.

  • During the 2014-15 season we will be celebrating 50 years of curling at the Legion. The planning committee is preparing many activities which will commemorate the development of our club from its inception in 1964.
    Among these is the production of a scrapbook which will trace the history of the club. We are encouraging all members to look into your collection of photographs or other memorabilia which could be included in this book.  Any and all items are welcome. Photographs will be scanned and the originals returned to the contributors.
    The scrapbook will be presented at the opening ceremony of the celebrations in early October and will be on display throughout the 2014-15 season. It is our hope that long time as well as current members will be able to dig up some photos which will stir the memories.
    Barb Mason is coordinating this project. Please contact her for information about the scrapbook, and, to offer contributions. You may reach her at:
    Phone: (450) 458-1344

    Time is always important, so the sooner the better
     
  • For everyone who loves Cape Breton music, square dancing and good old fun please keep the date of Saturday, September 13 free because Allie Mombourquette and Bradley Murphy will headline the Cape Breton Ceilidh and Square Dance evening that will take place at the Hudson Community Center starting at 7:30 pm. Tickets for the event cost $12 per person and they can be obtained by contacting the Hudson Legion branch. More information is available on the Legion events page.
  • The camaraderie and ambiance around the old Legion Hall was great during the Hardy Rocks and Day Ladder curling over the winter. To keep that social ball rolling, we’re starting a weekly Hardy Rocks’ soirée each Tuesday evening from 5:00 to 7:00 unless, of course, we decide to go on later. The first evening will be Tuesday, May 6.  Come on down and bring your significant other – the beer will be cold and the horseshoe pit will be humming. If we all agree, we’ll barbeque hamburgers on subsequent Tuesdays. This’ll be a great way to maintain friendships and maybe introduce a few potential curlers (guests) to the group.

 

Message from Peter Mansell, branch president

November 19, 2010

Peter Mansell, branch presidentWelcome to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 115 Hudson Quebec.

Branch 115 was given its Charter on 28 April 1945 and moved to its present home in the early 1950’s.  This is a very active Branch with just over 300 members.

The cosy and friendly atmosphere at our Legion is entirely due to the hard work and dedication of our staff and our many volunteers.

The Branch is proud of its commitment both to our Veterans and to the community. We also perpetuate the Remembrance of those who gave so much for the freedom that this country enjoys today. Every November our Remembrance Day Parade leads to the Remembrance Service and wreath laying ceremony at the cenotaph, in front of the Legion building.

Members can enjoy a wide variety of social events such as suppers, barbeques, entertainment and a host of other events throughout the year.  The branch is active in Legion sports programmes at a Provincial level, and our curling teams have represented Quebec at a national level.

We are able to serve our community by assisting in Legion programs to support our local youth, seniors, the disabled and others. The Legion also provides bursaries to students from Secondary School to University level.  The Branch is also a major supporter of our local cadet forces.

Nationally we are part of Canada's largest volunteer organization which provides tremendous intangible benefits through the commitment of members to fulfill the mandate of remembrance, service to the community and our country. Our fallen comrades served in battle, you have "another way to serve" by joining The Royal Canadian Legion.

New members are always welcome.

Lest We Forget

 

 

 

Report from the January 19, 2011 General Meeting

 

January 23, 2011

Members of Legion executiveAbout 50 persons attended the meeting with about half of them being there to be formally initiated as full-fledged members of the Royal Canadian Legion while the rest came to see and hear the information that Hans Gruenwald and Nicole Durand were there to share with the members about the renovations taking place at the Manoir Cavagnal.

It took about 40 minutes to complete the initiation ceremony and to dispose of all the business set in the meeting agenda. Once that was done, Nicole Durand presented several large bristol boards containing photographs which showed the work being done on the apartments at the Manoir. At the same time, Hans Gruenwald talked in detail about many aspects of that work. In particular, he mentioned that:

  • the Manoir is jointly owned by five different Legion branches
  • it is 32-years old and has an outstanding 18-year closed mortgage on which the monthly payments are $16,320
  • the number of apartments is being reduced by combining several bachelor type apartments into larger ones which are more in demand
  • it costs about $5,500 to renovate each apartment with a goal to do 10 of these per year
  • the renovations consist mainly of replacing doors and windows, improving the insulation from R12 to R31 and making changes to comply with current electrical and building code standards
  • out of the total of 87 apartments, there are presently several vacancies
