The final Pub Quiz for the winter season was held last Wednesday. Top score was held by the team called Leftovers and in second place there was Syd. $170.00 was raised for the Terry Fox Foundation. Thank you for all those who participated each month. See you on September 28th for the start of the fall season Pub Quizzes.

Tuesday night $3.00 hamburgers have been really popular so far and more are planned throughout the summer season. The Friday night bar-b-ques will begin on May 13th. The menu that night will be steak and will be hosted by Cody, Jim, Bob, Steve and Rod. Please reserve as soon as possible at 458-4882. I am sure it will be a sold out event.

We are looking for volunteers to set up a great meal such as salmon, steak, chicken etc... during the summer. The sign up list is posted in the bar.

There will be a Royal Canadian Legion contingent this coming Sunday, May 8th at St. James Anglican Church at 11 am where they will help Padre Lt. Commander Bateman commemorate the end of the Battle of the Atlantic and V.E. Day. The Battle of the Atlantic was the hardest fought and longest battle of World War II, lasting from 1939-1945.

The presentation was done by Legion Executive members Mike Elliott and Past President John Dalgarno.
    The two ladies received a wonderful round of applause in appreciation of their hard work.

  • Julia Mackey’s donation of the Fallen Hero print to the Hudson Legion
    After the Sept. 19th performance of Jake's Gift at the Village Theatre, Julia Mackey (playwright and performer) presented the Hudson Legion with a print of Fallen Hero. There to accept the print from Julia was Maxine Bredt, Pete Stephenson, and Vance Larson.  It will be framed and put up in our Legion in time for Remembrance.

    The Fallen Hero print was commissioned by Mark Norman - the founder of the Canadian Fallen Heroes Foundation. He asked Sooke Artist Steve Robertson to put together the image that you see in the Fallen Hero print. The image was inspired by 3 photos that Mark found.

    In addition to the print presentation, Julia Mackey donated $796.55 to the Legion, being the profits raised from the sale of Jake's Gift buttons. A portion of these proceeds will go towards the framing of Fallen Hero.

    Thank you!!
  • Bird seed for bird feeders
    As most of you are aware some members from the Legion have undertaken the task of filling the bird feeders that were installed by Legion members at the Palliative Care Residence.  The bird feeders which have been placed outside the patients windows, has brought hours of enjoyment to the patients as well as the families and visitors.
    The word is out and an endless array of birds are showing up for the feed.
    To date we have gone through over 150 lbs of seed, which has been donated for this purpose.
    If you are out shopping and you come across a bag of bird seed and you are interested in helping with a donation, it would be greatly appreciated. The residence would be pleased to provide you with a tax receipt, if you so wish.
    If you wish you can drop the seed off at the Legion Bar, the Palliative Care Residence, or call Carl Sandquist @ 450 458 7187 or Gerry Foliot 450 458 4882 and we will arrange to pick it up from you.
     

 

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
