We're continually working hard to improve our community of Shelburne and Dufferin County. If you're interested to see what we've been doing recently (especially if you want to help), check out our Facebook page, this Website or stop by the Branch. There is always room for new Volunteers and it is a great way to meet people and make new friends.
President of the
Royal Canadian Legion
We have a simple, but robust mission: to help people in need. We do that by focusing on community-based efforts including education, awareness, and food aid. We want to make a difference.
WEAR RED ON FRIDAYS TO SHOW SUPPORT FOR OUR TROOPS
If you have able hands, we need your help. Whether it's helping serve food in our kitchens, clean floors, dishes or tables at our events, canvassing for Poppies.
WE WANT YOU
All our committees are run by Volunteers and we could sure use fresh hands to help. Stop by Branch 220 and see what you can do to help. Beside we have fun while we raise money for our Veterans, their Families and our Community.
Thank you to the citizens of Shelburne for helping the Poppy Fund raise over $20,000.00 this year.
