Summer (such as it was) is almost over, and itís time to think of the Terrace Legion activities for the fall again. Donít forget, the really big day is November 11th, and lots more will be forthcoming. If you would like to help out the Remembrance Day Committee, please let us know at sinnott,,,telus.net
Did you know, that in the 1940ís, right in front of our Legion that the new Highway 16 was officially opened on September 4th? This was a major event in Terraceís history, and to celebrate that moment the Legion is hosting a tea (bar will be closed) and an open house at that time this year. Stay tuned as a special eNews will be out shortly about that special day. Put it in your calendar now, and plan on attending, and bring your friends.
Goodies Needed! We need all of you to help out for this special event by dropping off prior to September 4th, goodies and bakes goods for all our visitors, and yourself of course.
Steak Night is starting Friday September 2nd and the first Friday of each subsequent month. Come down and try the best Steaks in town! The Branch hours remain the same, so you can still drop by for a cold one!
Fee Increase. BC Yukon Command has increased our per capita in order to cover increasing costs, so the Branch has had to increase your feeís for 2012 and on to $50. This increase was approved at a General Meeting in the Spring subject to ratification of the increase at BC Yukon Command convention that has now taken place.
General Meeting! Our next General is on Tuesday, September 13th, 2011; and remember the new start time is 7pm, so you will be home in good time! Please join us, and share you energy and your ideas! We need you!
Have you tried Meat Draw! Well, give it a shot. Every Saturday from 4pm to 6pm is a chance to win some great meat packages! The Branch opens at 3pm, and stays open to 8pm, so come along and join us for a nice Adult Beverage!

Or related to a service person? Come in, and ask any of our friendly staff for an application form, and have your friends join you as a member of the Royal Canadian Legion, itís a great place to be, a great community of friends to work with, and itís a great service to our community and the Veterans both young and old that have given so much to each of us.
Remembering; itís not something we do just on November 11th, itís something we do every day.
