The Legion is a non-profit, dues supported, fraternal organization with approximately 1,500 branches in Canada, United States,
Germany and the Netherlands.
The Legion receives no financial assistance from any outside agency and membership is open to all Canadian citizens and Commonwealth subjects
who subscribe to the purposes and objects of the organization.
Your early bird membership fee is $45.00 of which $33.67 goes to Dominion Command and $3.00 goes to our Provincial Command which leaves the
Branch only just over $8.00 per member. We find ourselves again struggling with a $5000 shortfall in operating monies. The monies we obtain from meat draws,
pull tickets and turkey raffles all go into a Donation account which must be donated to our community groups, which we are proud to do! We regularly donate
$10-15,000 to local groups every year.
We have added a feature which we hope you will take advantage of. We have set up an email firstname.lastname@example.org which allows you to eTransfer money directly to the Branch’s General Fund.
If all members can donate in small increments or in a lump sum, we could be well on the way to recovery. You may choose to make an e transfer
donation or even send a cheque if online banking is not for you but please set a plan to help our Legion. Remember to keep any copies of items sent to the
Branch for your records!
Many Thanks, Branch 290 Executive
