The Ladies Auxiliary is an organization of women formed to assist in the aims and objects of the Royal Canadian Legion in seeing to the maintenance and comfort of the disabled, sick, aged, needy ex-service personnel and their dependants.
The Saturday afternoon meat draws are sponsored by the Ladies Auxiliary and held every Saturday at 1:30pm.
There is a 50 / 50 draw following the meat draw.
Applications for Ladies Auxiliary membership can be picked up at the front office or click on the Contact Us page to download a copy and email to KingswayLegion175LA@gmail.com
Five Kingsway LA members attended the 2019 Provincial Convention.
Congratulations are in order to Alice Graham who was presented her Palm Leaf the highest award available to LA members.
The Ladies Auxiliary is greatly in need of members across the province.
In 2015-2016 over one million dollars was raised and donated back to a combination of branches, community at large and to veteran's comfort and entertainment. Decreasing members are hurting the Ladies Auxiliaries and their Branches.
Our Kingsway LA has gone from 97 members in 2016 to 49 today. We ask that you consider becoming a Ladies Auxiliary member. Membership fee per year is $35. If you cannot attend the meetings but may be able to volunteer in some small way we would LOVE to have you. Membership forms are at the front desk at the branch.
The Kingsway Ladies Auxiliary in 2017 donated $39,600 from AGLC funds of which $26,000 was to our Kingsway Branch.
In 2018, $30,794 was donated from AGLC funds of which $16,694 was to our Kingsway Branch. We need your help so please consider joining.
If membership numbers across the province do not increase, sadly Ladies Auxiliaries will be gone as well as those supporting dollars to the Legion and the other organizations such as Last Post Fund, Cadet Units, Poppy Fund etc. etc.
Kingsway Ladies Auxiliary still has a few Legion #175 large and small license plates available for $15.00. Contact Kim Earles at 780-939-6253 if you would like one.
On Dec 14th we will be holding our annual Christmas Raffle and Bake Sale. This year we plan on having a craft table also. If you are crafty and would like to donate something please keep us in mind when you are crafting away!
Our meetings are finished until September. If you need to get a hold of a member just leave a message at the front desk. Ladies Auxiliary Membership forms are available at the front desk.
Saturday meat draws continue throughout the summer.
Thank you members for all your support.
