Hudson Legion latest news

April 7, 2014

The fine weather is finally here and that means the end of another curling season. The Juniors wound up another season this past Sunday. Many thanks to Lisa Krebs for heading the program this year along with Rob Maclean who is still helping out as much as he can. The junior program can still accept more players for the next season so keep it in mind if you know anyone interested in playing.

All the curling executives should be praised for making this club the success it has become due to their commitments.

The regular curling closing takes place this Saturday with lots of action on the ice, lots of great food prepared by Sharlene & Wade Dearling, and the band Night Vision for your music enjoyment. Don't miss out. Guests are welcome at $20.00 person but must confirm by Thursday.

Roast pork is on the menu this Friday and tickets are still available. Call now at 450-458-4882. The next Crib night will be held on Friday May 2nd.

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 1950ís.  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
