Wreaths for Veterans

On Sunday, December 3rd

Message from Peter Martin:

On Sunday, December 3rd the Transcona Legion, Branch 7 held a special ceremony at the Transcona cemetery Field of honour. Peter Martin organized this event on behalf of the Transcona Legion and it involved the placing of Christmas wreaths at the beginning and end of each row of tombstones as well as placing tea lights on the top of each gravestone. The wreaths were donated by Geoff and Regan Archambault and the tea lights were donated by the Transcona BIZ.

In one of the attached photos Geoff is officially presenting the 1st wreath to Sharon Mortimer ( Legion President) as the volunteers who placed the lites and wreaths, look on.

These lites and wreaths will remain in place for the month of December.

  We encourage anyone who is available to come out and see this display

The generous donations in support of our Veterans is an example of Remembrance
and appreciation for the sacrifices of our Veterans.

Thank-you Peter Martin for the work you do in preserving the
Remembrance of Veterans in the Transcona community.

Building Fund – As posted in Transcona Views


Dear Transcona community members:

For over 90 years, members of the Transcona Legion have helped us to remember.

They have faithfully visited our schools each year for Remembrance ceremonies.
They have led thousands of us in parades and services.
They have paid their respects to those who sacrificed their lives for our freedoms.
They have brought meaning and depth to the act of Remembrance.

But now, they need our help.

The flags they use to “march on the colours” are worn out and need replacing.
The foundation of the Legion Hall is in dire need of repair.

In all, they need to raise $50,000 over the next few months to qualify for a matching grant so they can complete the repairs.

For over 90 years, the Transcona Legion has shared themselves with us.

Now we get to say Thank You. Please give generously.


The Transcona Legion will be creating a Wall of Appreciation for donors to this campaign. All donations are welcome!

All donations above $25 will be recognized on the wall with larger areas allocated to larger donations. The contribution levels being recognized are

Cornerstone $2,500+;
Foundation $1,000+;
Beam $500+;
Post $250+;
Brick $100+;
Stucco $25.

You can donate by sending an electronic funds transfer
(ETF) to or in person at the Transcona Legion (117 Regent Avenue East) or by calling the Legion at 204-222-9951 to arrange someone to pick up your donation.

Let’s remember those who remember for us.
