BILLY BISHOP / KERRISDALE LEGION - B.C./Yukon No.176

Announcements

We thank all our members and your guests who continue to support the Branch with your patronage during this unprecedented time.

A message from our Sunday volunteers, the Meat Draw Mavens

Meat Draw profits are used to support key charitable organizations chosen by and supported by the membership. As some of you are aware, Legion Branches are governed under the same Gaming laws and regulations as large casinos. As a not-for-profit organization with Service at its core and soul, we often struggle to support our chosen charities. We are not alone as many legions struggle across the country to not only stay open but to fulfill our service mandate. This year the financial, cultural and emotional strain due to the Covid-19 pandemic sees us struggling more than ever.

We are asking for your assistance in this regard – this link takes you to a letter that we ask you send to your local MLS’s to seek support  to enact legislation to allow service clubs (Legions) to retain a larger share of gaming money.

Thank you in advance
The Meat Draw Mavens
