Veterans Christmas Gift Drive

Once again, this holiday season the Royal Canadian Legion, Hudson Branch #115, is appealing to the community to support the annual Veterans’ Gift Drive. Sainte-Anne’s Veteran’s Hospital is home to some 300 Veterans of WW II and the Korean War.  In addition to the older Veterans residing in Ste-Anne’s, there are several younger Veterans of the Canadian Forces, and the RCMP, receiving rehabilitation for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following active duty.

Items that would be most appreciated are:

For Men (sizes L, XL)

For Women (sizes M, L, XL)

Housecoats
Cardigans with buttons
T-Shirts
Suspenders and belts
Jogging suits / casual stretch pants

Jogging suits / casual stretch pants
Cardigans with buttons

Please, NO socks, underwear, soap, perfume or after shave. Donations need to be new items, and the Hospital thanks you for your understanding in this matter.  

Cookies and chocolates are always welcome!

The Veterans in Ste-Anne’s come from all over Canada.  The holiday season can be a difficult time of year to be apart from family, and the generosity of the local community goes a long way.  Please support our Veterans, young and old, by dropping off unwrapped gifts, before December 16th, at one of the following 2 drop-off points:

Hudson Legion, 56 Beach Road, (450-458-4882)
Ste-Anne’s Hospital itself, attention Johanne Grenier, Volunteer Services (514-457-3440, ext. 2399).

Thank you!

The 2016 Remembrance Day ceremonies that took place at our branch was a very special occasion for several reason. One of them was the fact that one of the participants was WO Stephane Boisclair, who donated his helmet to our branch last year.  The helmet is very unique because it is covered in poppies, one for each Canadian who lost their life in Afghanistan. The photos below show WO Boisclair with the helmet in the company of some of the members of our branch.

Why is everyone talking about Tuesday Hamburger Night?

BBQ chefIt’s not only that they are the best burgers in town, but we found out the secret last week when we spoke with Peter Robinson and his crew. He added (get this) a little RUM and Maple Syrup along with his spices. Were they ever Yummy!

Burger Tuesdays are prepared by different groups, members of the Legion Hardy Rock Curling group. The different groups are all out to see who can produce the best burger.

If you haven’t as yet been down to try one, then you don’t  know what you’re missing. Tuesdays from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Thank you flowers

 

The Project sponsored by some Legion Members, would like to thank all the Legion members and friends who have recently donated bird seed to fill the feeders at the Local Palliative Care Residence.
The feeders are a great enjoyment for the patients and their families. We go through 10 to 15 lbs of seed a week.

The VSPC are very grateful for our efforts. Enjoy the Sun Shine.
See you at the Legion. Thanks.

2016-04 Hudson Legion volunteers installing bird feedersWith the winter season over the birds have come back to the Palliative Care Residence.

2016-04 bird feeders at Palliative Care ResidenceThanks guys for a job well done. The Palliative care really appreciate your efforts.

 


 

With the cooperation of the Hudson Legion Br. 115 the above volunteers have provided a wonderful donation to the VSPCRF.

 

 

This activity outside the patients windows brings hours of enjoyment to the patients as well as their families and visitors.

The foundation is a non-profit organization offering free palliative care services to people with terminal illnesses within the region and the surrounding area.

If you are interested and able to help us with this project, by providing us with a donation of bird seed or financial assistance it will allow us to fill and maintain these feeders all summer long.

The foundation would be pleased to provide you with a tax receipt.

Donations can be made by dropping off the seed at the residence in Como, or at the Legion in Hudson, or contact Gerry Foliot <450 458 4125> to arrange a pick up.

Thank you for your consideration of this matter.

Julia Mackey’s donation of the Fallen Hero print to the Hudson Legion

After the Sept. 19th performance of Jake's Gift at the Village Theatre, Julia Mackey (playwright and performer) presented the Hudson Legion with a print of Fallen Hero. There to accept the print from Julia was Maxine Bredt, Pete Stephenson, and Vance Larson.  It will be framed and put up in our Legion in time for Remembrance.

The Fallen Hero print was commissioned by Mark Norman - the founder of the Canadian Fallen Heroes Foundation. He asked Sooke Artist Steve Robertson to put together the image that you see in the Fallen Hero print. The image was inspired by 3 photos that Mark found.

In addition to the print presentation, Julia Mackey donated $796.55 to the Legion, being the profits raised from the sale of Jake's Gift buttons.  A portion of these proceeds will go towards the framing of Fallen Hero.

Message from Eric Connor, branch president

November 21, 2016

Eric Connor, branch presidentWelcome to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 115 Hudson Quebec.

I feel very honored to have been chosen to be the President  of the Royal Canadian Legion, Hudson, Br 115. 

We have a great bunch of volunteers here in Hudson, from the great team on the Poppy Campaign, to all who give their time to provide the many activities which are organized each month, like the Bingo, Pub Quiz, Crib night, the bi-weekly Friday night suppers with our Manager Joan Hughes and her staff of helpers serving up great meals for a very small cost of $15.00. 

We also have the weekly Tuesday Burger night started originally by our Curlers during their summer break, and now carried on by Joan and her group of volunteers during the winter.  Rod Hodgson does sterling work at some of the other functions previously mentioned, and also does a 50/50 draw some weeks to raise funds for certain projects around the Legion.

The curlers are doing well, and the Junior group held on a Sunday mornings, is now completely full.

Report from the January 19, 2011 General Meeting

 

January 23, 2011

Members of Legion executiveAbout 50 persons attended the meeting with about half of them being there to be formally initiated as full-fledged members of the Royal Canadian Legion while the rest came to see and hear the information that Hans Gruenwald and Nicole Durand were there to share with the members about the renovations taking place at the Manoir Cavagnal.

It took about 40 minutes to complete the initiation ceremony and to dispose of all the business set in the meeting agenda. Once that was done, Nicole Durand presented several large bristol boards containing photographs which showed the work being done on the apartments at the Manoir. At the same time, Hans Gruenwald talked in detail about many aspects of that work. In particular, he mentioned that:

  • the Manoir is jointly owned by five different Legion branches
  • it is 32-years old and has an outstanding 18-year closed mortgage on which the monthly payments are $16,320
  • the number of apartments is being reduced by combining several bachelor type apartments into larger ones which are more in demand
  • it costs about $5,500 to renovate each apartment with a goal to do 10 of these per year
  • the renovations consist mainly of replacing doors and windows, improving the insulation from R12 to R31 and making changes to comply with current electrical and building code standards
  • out of the total of 87 apartments, there are presently several vacancies
