Members it is important to come out and be informed on the day to day running of the Branch. Consider becoming a member of the Executive. We have some vacancies that need to be filled and encourage members to participate to help continue to make our Branch the place we welcome not only our Members but the Community as a whole. Your input is very valuable and important.

We honour the Veterans who have returned from various conflicts and lived out their lives in Transcona. The Family and Friends of the Veterans place a cross with a poppy on each grave. There are some Veterans who have no family, we are inviting the community to come down for this ceremony and place the cross on their graves. Our Branch provides the crosses and it is a beautiful sight to see all the graves with the cross.
The Day will begin with a Service at the
Field of Honour in the Transcona Cemetery
