Legion Week is a time when we invite our friends, neighbours, business partners and civic leaders to visit local Legions to learn more about what we do in the community.

BBQs, Open Houses, Pancake Breakfasts, and live music are just some of the neat things local Legions are hosting!

Here's a full list of local events being held throughout BC.
