On April 22nd, 2017 the amalgamation of the Royal Canadian Legion’s Collingwood Branch #48 with Grandview Branch #179 was celebrated by a joyous crowd of guests and dignitaries and deemed a great success by all that attended.
The celebration started with our integrated executive marching in our new charter to the sound of the pipes with members of the Lower Mainland Colour Party and officially placing our new charter on the wall. (Read more for slide show from the party)
A great big thank you goes out to all that participated in the celebration with special thanks to the members and staff that made the day a great success. The food was plentiful and the entertainment spectacular with the highlight of the day a performance by Linda Jones. Linda has been entertaining for many years \and has dedicated her career to preserving the music of the 1st and 2nd world war Veteran’s.
