Our good deeds

The Hudson Legion branch #115 does not exist only for the benefit of its members. In fact, far from it. Every year, through the actions of its members, the Hudson branch of the Royal Canadian Legion helps many other local organizations. Here is a running tally of the many good deeds that our branch contributes to the community.
