Join the Legion

Welcome to Branch 244 of The Royal Canadian Legion

Catch the Ace winner on Friday, March 22, was SANDRA ECHLIN, of Perth, winning $180 (20%) and she chose Envelope #27 with the KING of CLUBS inside. (180 tickets sold X $5.00=$900).

The progressive amount of $270 (30%) rolls over into next week's draw, added to last week's progressive amount of $1165.50, totalling $1435.50. Our Legion receives $450 (50%), added to last week's amount of $1942.50, totalling $2392.50.

You do NOT have to be a Legion member to play, and you do NOT have to be there the night of the draw!

Please support our Legion and buy your ticket for next week's draw for $5.00. The more tickets sold...the BIGGER the pot. A FUN 'FUN'draiser for Branch 244!

Try to catch that elusive ACE OF SPADES! For you, we hope so...for the Legion, not so much!

Legion badgeThe Legion serves all Veterans

The Royal Canadian Legion was founded by Veterans and for Veterans. We advocate for the care and benefits for all who served Canada, regardless of when or where they served. The Legion also provides representation and assistance to Veterans, including currently serving Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP, and their families, and access to our services is available to them at no cost, whether or not they are Legion members. The Legion helps thousands of Veterans each year and makes significant positive changes in their lives. 

The Legion exists so that Canada never forgets

The Legion understands the importance of honouring past sacrifices and acknowledging the courage of those who served and still serve today. Through Remembrance Day ceremonies, the Poppy campaigncommemorative activitiesyouth education programs and more, the Legion helps Canadians to honour and remember.

The Legion serves our communities and our country

Legion Branches are the cornerstone of communities across Canada, and provide one of the largest volunteer bases in the country. With more than 1,400 Branches from coast to coast to coast, our members provide local services and supports to build a stronger Canada. Whether helping local Veterans, supporting seniors, providing youth sports programs, raising funds, volunteering to help those in need, or simply offering a place to gather for fun and celebration, Legionnaires provide essential services in their communities.
