Langley Legion opens its doors to the community

Community members can now rent out space at the Langley Legion’s new location

For 90 years, the Langley Legion has been assisting veterans and those in need in the community, and now they are issuing an open invitation to those they serve: come and see us.

Langley Branch 21 of the Royal Canadian Legion is now renting their meetings rooms to community groups, churches, organization, and anyone looking for a convenient and affordable place to gather, at their new lcoation at 20604 Logan Ave.

This initiative is part of the executive committee’s campaign to find new ways to stay viable and fund their operations.

Most people associate the Legion with the Poppy Campaign, which is held leading up to Remembrance Day each year in November. The generous and much-appreciated donations received from the community go directly back into the community, to Langley Lodge, for student bursaries, to help veterans and their spouses with their health care needs, and those veterans suffering from post traumatic stress disorder.

However, funds raised during the Poppy Campaign cannot be used to support the day-to-day running of the Langley Legion, which is looking for new funding sources that will allow it to keep functioning.

For more information, contact Branch 21 Manager/Secretary Heather Eriksen at rcl21@telus.net or 604-534-3615 during office hours, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesday to Friday.

The Legion is always looking for new members to join the Branch, come up with new ideas, and lend a hand when they can. You do not need a military affiliation to join — anyone over the age of 19 can become a member, and help those who have given so much for our country.
