New Vimy tree planted at Branch 115

Well the new Vimy Oak has arrived and we planted it on Thursday, June 18,2020.

A local area resident was kind enough to pick it up near Dundas, Ontario and deliver it to us free of charge.

The seven memorial plaques for the posts surrounding Place Vimy, that were advertised to be available, have now been sold and should be installed by the end of this coming week.

Work on the Place Vimy Park bench is coming along well and it should be here by mid-August if all goes well.

Thank you for supporting our cause!

A Lady that cares for our Veterans
December 23, 2019, - Each week a local resident, Gwen Periard, collects our empty wine, liquor and soft drink cans and takes them to Hawkesbury.

The money raised goes to purchase gifts for the Veterans at the Ste Anne’s Veterans Hospital at Christmas.

This year she has raised $930.00.

This is a wonderful volunteer achievement from a local lady who is not a Legion member but who cares for our Veterans.

Thank you, Gwen, on behalf of all the members of Legion Branch 115 in Hudson.

For the gifts, she coordinates this with Legion members Linda Eames & John Dalgarno.

Sadly, Gwen cannot continue in 2020 thus we will be looking for a volunteer to carry on her dedication and hard work.
