Legion has always been part of the community
An open letter to the citizens of Prince George:
Your Legion branch is an integral part of the community and is struggling.
Prince George branch has existed since 1926 and we are now within months of a forced closure due to our inability to sell our building and downsize to a new location.
We thought you should know that your community is in very real risk of losing your Legion.
We are about community:
Remember: Our community has a history of dedicated military service which is woven into the city’s social values and traditions. It is a noble heritage which grounds and strengthens each generation anew. Who will honour Prince George’s rich history through Remembrance Day services if your branch is gone?
Join: Did you know we can’t spend the money we raise to save our own future? We can only give to the community. It is only membership dues and participation that fund operations.
Give: Legion fundraising supports your community in ways you can’t imagine – $1 million and counting for Connaught Youth Centre; $20,000 Kordyban Lodge; $10,000 Hospice House; $20,000 community sport teams and events; $50,000 veterans in need; $20,000 medical equipment; $15,000 scholarships bursaries, and the list goes on.
Who will assume this dedicated community investment, if your Legion closes?
Your branch needs you now. Join as a member – come out to participate.
Thank you Prince George, we know you will be there for us as we have been there for you.
The Royal Canadian Legion
