SARNIA LEGION BRANCH 62 NEWSLETTER

Message from President Les Jones

Dear Comrades, 

I am proud and honoured to be appointed as the 46th Sarnia Legion Branch 62 President.  I look forward to serving our Veterans, members and the community.  

I would like to thank my predecessor, Lynn Mathieson for her leadership and guidance over the past 2 years while I served as her Vice President.  Her experience, dedication and knowledge will be missed by the Executive and our Ladies Auxiliary.  I would also like to thank Jim Burgess for continuing on with his role as Past President as I will rely on his expertise and leadership to move the Branch forward.  

As a Veteran, I look forward to connecting with and engaging Veterans within the community who served their Country, this includes The Cold War, Peacekeeping Missions and the War in Afghanistan.  

I'm optimistic as we appear to be exiting the pandemic.  The Executive has continued to meet throughout and we look forward to bringing new events and restarting some of our signature activities such as Catch the Ace, Meat Raffle, First Friday, Open Mic and much more.  

As of this writing, our Legion is open to the public.  Please stop by and reengage with your Branch.  We need your support now, more than ever.         

Yours in Comradeship,

Les Jones
President
Branch 62

The Branch is proud to announce that we have a patio!

Ladies Auxiliary: New Members Needed 

Serve your Community!

The Ladies Auxiliary is a group of dedicated volunteers who manage the kitchen and provide meals for our events.  Due to the pandemic we are needing to enhance the number of volunteers on their team. 

This volunteer group is available to both men and women.  No kitchen experience required, just a "can do" attitude. 

If you are interested in joining the team, please contact Vice President & Membership Coordinator, Mary Ann Buntrock,  519-332-2686.

Thank you.
