  • Remembrance Day parade
    On Sunday, November 9, 2014 Legion members, public officials, community groups and many visitors and observers took part in the annual Remembrance Day parade and ceremonies. Amongst them was Maxine Bredt who served during WW II as a nurse with the Canadian Army Medical Corps and was in Italy during most of the Italian Campaign between 1944 and 1945.
    She married an RCAF pilot Bill Bredt and moved to Hudson where they have lived ever since. Bill died a few years ago. He had a long career as a TCA/Air Canada pilot.
    Maxine is VERY involved with the Ste. Ann's Veterans Hospital and of course numerous activities here in Hudson. She is now 96 and our second oldest WW II veteran in Hudson. Here she is in her uniform.

  • Curling club’s 50th anniversary
    A link to photos taken during the Hudson Legion Curling Club’s 50th anniversary season opening ceremony, which took place on Thursday, October 9, 2014 has been posted on the Archives and Photos page.
    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:

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.

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
