Ladies Auxiliary Branch 92 Gananoque, Ontario
TO THE ONTARIO PROVINCIAL COMMAND LADIES' AUXILIARY
The Legion was founded in November 1925 in Winnipeg and chartered in July 1926 by special Act of Parliament. However, veteran's welfare and assistance had been carried on since 1916. During the 1914-1918 war years as wounded veterans returned home, women were asked to help with their recovery by visiting hospitals, sending parcels to the hospitalized and to needy families. These ladies served the veterans and their dependants. Thus, our Ladies' Auxiliary unofficially became a reality! Ontario Command have 292 Auxiliaries with 13,731 members.
Ladies' Auxiliary Objective
The members of the Ladies' Auxiliary shall be available to assist the Branch in its activities. As the individual Branches are the most important element in the structure of the Royal Canadian Legion, thus the Ladies' Auxiliary becomes a very integral part of the work of the Legion at all levels.
Becoming an Auxiliary member can be a very rewarding experience. Our Auxiliaries goals are important to us, and so are our members! They ensure that activities are planned for you to enjoy as well. It is recognized that not everyone wants to or can give the same time commitment to the Auxiliary, but we are grateful for whatever time you can spare to assist with the work of this great national organization.
Check upcoming events for all dinners and lunches.
