Comrade Robin Pelletier is a member of our Branch 115 and serves as our Service Officer & Sgt. at Arms.

He spent over 15 years in the Canadian Armed Forces, and during the winter he built this beautiful park bench.

He has it in front of his house in St. Lazare.

Nice tribute from a very fine fellow.




Fundraising at Branch 115

December 5, 2020

Our fundraising campaign on December 5, in the form of drive-thru, was a great success.

Comrade Jay Oland organized an amazing day, and it was VERY well received.

A special thank you goes out to all of our members and friends who dropped by to purchase the various products we had available.

Some 125 cars drove through our set up with the occupants donating 680 kg of food for the John Abbott College Food Bank.

Numerous members and new members also signed up for 2021.

It was a long cold day for our 17 volunteers, but very worthwhile and just seeing members and friends for the first time in many months was wonderful as well.

On behalf of Legion Branch 115, I wish to thank all of you who were there on that day.

You are all so kind and generous.

Comrade Rod L. Hodgson
President
Branch 115

Donation to the Branch from a local area resident

Mrs. Paola Irrera handing over her donation
to our Branch President, comrade Rod Hodgson.

Back in October, Paola Irrera, decided to make poppy masks and she promised to donate part of the sales to our Legion, Branch 115.

Well, at the end of November she had raised $850.00!

On behalf of our Branch, thank you for this very kind and generous donation.




Place Vimy park bench

October 24, 2020


The idea was conceived by Branch 1st V.P. Mike Elliott and the design was made by Natalie Trainor of St. Lazare.

The project got really moving by Executive member Jay Oland then it was built by Keith Bonerak of Rigaud.


It is totally unique and was paid for by donations from the family of Lt. Harry E. Trenholme RCNVR, WW II.

He was at D-Day on a landing craft and was awarded the Legion of Honour a few years ago.

The other donor was the D-Day Society & Friends who Remember.


This group of which Harry was a member, was formed in 1945 by those who had been at D-Day the year before.

Only Ian M. Walker who was with the British Army that day is left, he lives in Okotoks, AB.

We normally meet every year for a lunch at the Hudson Legion, but not this year, the first time in 75 years.

Sad as we normally get 85-90 ‘’Friends who Remember’’. Legionnaires and just friends.
