OAK LAKE LEGION BRANCH #79 - Monument Refurbished

Poppy Fund

On the 11th of November 2016, Oak Lake Branch #79 held the unveiling of its refurbished Monument. The original one was unveiled in 2004 but weather and climate conditions have taken its toll on the monument. The original lettering was nearly unreadable, thus we applied to Veterans Affairs Canada – Cenotaph/Monument/Restoration Program in Charlottetown, PEI and we were successful in getting a grant to assist in defraying part of the costs associated with the restoration. The Dedication Service was conducted by the Branch Padre, Don Sellsted, assisted by Comrade Morris Clarke (on the left) and Comrade Clair Moir (on the right). These two dedicated Legion Members were also presented with their Life Memberships following the dedication service.


The Oak Lake Legion celebrated their 90th Anniversary in December 2016 with a current membership of 80. Our Branch is located 52 km west of Brandon in an urban community of approximately 380 residents. The Branch is proud to be an integral part of the community and supports many organizations in the area.


Oak Lake Branch #79 would like to express its heartfelt thanks to Veteran’s Affairs Canada for helping our small branch refurbish our Monument, to proudly pay tribute to our Veterans.


Clair Moir, Branch Restoration Chairman

Island Lakes Students Honour Soldiers



Students from Island Lakes Community School have created a multi-media project that seeks to honour the bravery and sacrifice of the many Canadians and other people who have fought over the years in world conflicts. In remembering the realities of the past, they question the real cost of war. This is an emotionally-charged exploration of what "war" means, especially in terms of how it affects families. This video challenges us all.

Manitoba veterans to benefit from transition and counselling services

Group photo of many of the branches who donated to this worthy cause.

A $90,000 grant from the Royal Canadian Legion Manitoba/Northwest Ontario Command will mean more counselling services for local veterans.

The command provided the grant to the Veterans Transition Network and will fund counselling and transition services for veterans who are not covered by Veterans Affairs Canada or the Department of National Defence.

The Veterans Transition Network is a Canadian charity that delivers group-based programs to assist current and former members of the Canadian Forces and RCMP struggling with the transition to civilian life. For more information about the Veterans Transition Network go to vtncanada.org. (Metro News)
