This old photo from our archives shows a special unknown and very early Legion ceremony about 50 years ago. This was held in the empty lot just next to Wyman Memorial United Church. If anyone knows what this was for please advise us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Legionnaire Stan Bowen can just be seen in the centre of the photo holding one of the flags. Others present that we can pick out were Francis Halcro, Peter Stephenson and George Runnells. More old photos in the coming weeks.
We still have a number of T-shirts in various sizes and still at $25 each and also 10 packs of hasty notes at $10 for a pack of 10 with envelopes. If you are interested please drop us a line at email@example.com and we can arrange a pick up or delivery time.
It is with great sadness that we must announce the passing of one of our more senior members, Mr. André Beauchamp. He leaves his dear wife Jacquie and children Pierre and Aline. André was a former Hudson Police Constable in the 1950s and for many years operated a small engine and outboard marine repair shop on Yacht Club Road as well as the Hudson Royal Theatre. Our deepest condolences go out to his family. The flag outside the Legion was lowered to half mast in his memory this past week.
Lest we forget…
