Dan WilliamsI remember selling 50/50 tickets for fund raising. I think they were a quarter or fifty cents each and a book of 6 was 2.50 or something like that and I got 50 cents a book for what I sold I think. Long time ago!

This is a repost of a photo that Linda Gallipeau-Johnston sent me awhile back. The legion was part of my life and this month is for remembering. I remember standing outside in the cold with Branch #99 and marching in the Remembrance parade with my grandfather and dad.. God bless the legion! – pic of Sandra Foy, Bob Giles, Linda Gallipeau-Johnston and Judy Gollinger() at public speaking and my pretty sure it was grade 7. It took place at the legion Branch # 192

branch99

The photo above is Branch 99 from Cowansville, Quebec. It is the very branch my Grandfather Frederick J. Knight helped found after serving in the trenches in WW1. My father Arthur J. Knight followed suit in WW2 and proudly followed his father, always supporting Branch number 99 until his death. Each year I would march in the Remembrance Parade behind the Legion. When I found this picture of them marching in Cowansville in the 1950’s it brought tears to my eyes.

The Canadian Legion is extremely important to me no matter where they are located. It should be important to you too!

There are great stories coming out of our local Branch 192 Carleton Place. Rhonda Pond sent me this message:

I recently received my 20 year membership pin, and I couldn’t be prouder of many, many leaders in our community! I am moved tremendously by Comrades Ron Gobel, Jerry Flynn, the Ocean Wave Fire Company, the Carleton Place OPP and every volunteer who has shown Dan Boudreault what it means to belong. Thank you to my Dad, Comrade Garry Pond, for sharing this with me. Please pass this along ~ we want EVERY veteran to have a place to come to for help. Join your local Legion, volunteer where when you can. You never know which friend or neighbour will need you first, or which one might help you. ‪#‎findyourRCL‬ ‪#‎branch192‬
