Although our main focus continues to be remembering those who gave their lives for freedom, and looking after the needs of veterans, their dependants, and those still serving in the Canadian Forces; Legions throughout Ontario Command are also contributing to the well being of our neighbours by sponsoring community programs.
Supporting Veterans, promoting Remembrance and helping our communities is our duty, but we also have lots of things going on every day.
Bring your family and friends to the St. George Legion, as we are always open to the public.
We have special Event dates throughout the month, but here are some you will want to schedule regularly in your calendar from 5 to 7pm:
1st Saturday every month - FISH FRY
2nd Friday every month - WING NIGHT (choose from 9 flavours)
3rd Saturday every month - STEAK BARBECUE
Last Saturday every month - COMMUNITY BBQ (Proceeds to a different local organization each time)
3rd weekend in September (EVERY YEAR) - St. George APPLEFEST. This is the weekend that we host a breakfast as well as a Vendor's Market on the front lawn. Contact us if you are interested.
HONOUR AND REMEMBER:
The Remembrance Day Ceremony has played a major role in Remembrance since 1931. Every year, at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we gather in memorial parks, community halls, workplaces, schools and homes to stand in honour of all who have fallen.
Together, we observe a moment of silence to mark the sacrifice of the many who have fallen in the service of their country, and to acknowledge the courage of those who still serve.
Royal Canadian Legion members take pride in organizing Remembrance Day Ceremonies in over 1,400 Branches across Canada and abroad. Through each Branch, the Legion continues the traditions of Remembrance so that Canada ‘never forgets.’
Join us on November 11th each year for our REMEMBRANCE DAY SERVICE at the Cenotaph on Main Street, St. George at 10:45 a.m. A Community Luncheon at the Legion will follow the service.
