Come one, come all

As the years have gone by, the Royal Canadian Legion has had to evolve.

The Royal Canadian Legion Branch #261-Forest Grove is working very hard to let the community know everyone is welcome – members and non-members alike. Even though folks don’t have to become a member to enter the Legion, they must be signed in by one.

Those who want to take their families out for supper should know their children are welcome, as there is family dining every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

The Legion also hosts seniors, cribbage and dart clubs, Friday Steak Night, Saturday meat draw and now church services are held every Sunday night at 7 p.m.

In the summer months, it’s even busier because more outdoor activities take place. Barbecues and baseball are some of the usual events and the newest event is the Redneck Weekend – are well attended.

In the years past, people could only join the Legion if they or one of their relatives was in the military, but this is no longer the case. New members are always welcomed and encouraged.
