Here is a nice photo of our Br. #115 Ladies Auxiliary from November 6, 1977. You may recognize a few of these fine ladies. Among them are Cecile Hodgson, Ollie Mullan, Harriet Benson, Gel Runnells, Winnie Villeneuve, Hazel Wright, Mary Wright Rozon, and Olive Lalonde.
This is just a reminder of what we posted last week. The two owners who operate Reni Décors & Antiques, Renata and Patrick, are donating 10 per cent of all their sales between February 17 and March 31 to the Legion. Their store is located right next to Mon Village Restaurant in Saint-Lazare. Renata sells home décor, beddings, gifts, pillows, etc. while Patrick has a large antique and collectables store in the basement. He deals in military antiques, uniforms, helmets, medals and general antiques and is a member of our Legion Branch #115. Please drop by and see what they have to offer. They are open every Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. They have been very gracious of trying to support our Legion Br. #115 during this period of closure.
We have now been closed for exactly one year as of this past Monday, except for the three short days when we were open back in September. We still have no idea when we will be able or permitted to re-open. However, we will advise you as soon as we know. Hopefully it will be sooner than later!
We still have a number of T-shirts and hasty notes available for your purchase. The T-shirts are $25 each and the hasty notes are $10 for a pack of 10 with envelopes. Just contact us at our e-mail; firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set up a date to choose what you want.
A COVID-19 vaccination clinic is now set up in the Centre Multisports in Vaudreuil-Dorion and a mobile clinic is also set up in the Salle de l’Amitié at 10 rue Saint-Jean-Baptiste in Rigaud. Those 65 years and older are now able to make an appointment to receive their COVID-19 vaccine through the cliquesante.ca website or by calling 1-877-644-4545. Good luck and stay safe.
Our flag is at half mast in memory of Mme Margo Arsenault, Past President of Quebec Provincial Command and a member of Valleyfield Legion Br. #062. Our deepest condolences go out to her family and friends.
Lest we forget…
