Poppy Campaign: Hockey Night with the DML

Once again Branch 25 is incredibly thankful that the Prime Moose, Sarah Price, has agreed to take some poppies and a poppy box and make them available at upcoming Digital Moose Lounge events.  The images below are ones that were shared by the organization from their “Hockey Night with the DML” which featured the Sharks vs. Leafs.

Below are some images from the event and I want everyone to note the poppies in each picture.

The Poppy Campaign is coming to your community soon!

Please note that due to our location in the US and how much our members are spread-out throughout the Bay Area, you can get your poppies from our branch now.  More information can be found at:

Service dogs for those who served
In August 2018, the Legion’s Ontario Provincial Command partnered with Wounded Warriors Canada (WWC) to launch Operation Service Dog, with the goal to pair as many injured Veterans as feasible with trained Service Dogs. In the past 12 months alone, WWC is estimating the pairing and placement of 25 Service Dogs with Veterans in Ontario, with a further 18 in training – an increase from 17 dogs paired and placed the previous 12 months, demonstrating that this initiative is producing results!

Celebrating our Legion Volunteers
The Royal Canadian Legion is proud to recognize Legion Branch 244 Perth member Sue Doran. Sue works tirelessly to support not only Veterans, but the entire Perth community.
Some of her recent initiatives include the organization of 307 Veteran banners, a candle-lit lantern memorial, a nearly sold-out golf tournament, a parade for the Perth community, and a quilt of Valor ceremony.
On behalf of the Legion and its Branches, we thank you for your service to the Legion!
During a community crisis, Team Rubicon Canada, a Veteran-led disaster relief organization, and the Tweed Legion came together to support the town and get the community back on its feet, exemplifying the qualities upheld at The Royal Canadian Legion.
“Team Rubicon Canada is proud to be part of this story and to have served this incredibly strong community when they needed help the most.
Our Greyshirts are overwhelmed with gratitude for the support the people of the Municipality of Tweed, Mayor Joanne Albert, Tweed Legion, Donna Bunting, and all the local restaurants have shown our team after each day of sweaty volunteer disaster response work helping our neighbours.” – Team Rubicon Canada

Poppy Campaign: 5th Annual Canadian Thanksgiving

Earlier today the branch unofficially began its annual 2022 Poppy Campaign, as it participated in the 5th Annual Canadian Thanksgiving that was co-hosted Digital Moose Lounge and the Canadian Studies Program at the University of California at Berkeley.  Below are some pictures from the event.

Poppies From The Canadian Consulate in San Francisco in 2021

Unlike they have been able to in previous years, due to continuing COVID restrictions we were unable to list the Canadian Consulate in San Francisco as an official distribution for our 2021 Poppy Campaign.

However, clients who had to go to the Consulate for existing appointments were able to pick up a poppy and – if they chose to – make a donation to the campaign at the display seen below.
