Honourary Street Names

RECOGNIZATION OF WWII VETERANS RESIDING IN TRANSCONA

This year, is the 75th Anniversary to the end of World War II, Transcona had a significant number of men lost to this war-over 40 never returned home.  Our Branch has actively remembered our fallen at our Decoration Day in June and our Remembrance Day Service.

Comrade Peter Martin, from our Branch, has been working with members of our Community to         ensure “We Never Forget” our Veterans.

This group has worked on a project researching the names of Veterans who live within our Community and who served during WWII. The goal is to have a Honourary Street named        after them.  We encourage everyone to go about the community to view this special tribute.

Today Transcona has 8 Honourary Street Names with a new one submitted to the City for consideration.

Andrushko Way- corner of Melrose and Wabasha (Steve Andrushko)

Henry Golis Way -Regent W between Winona and Madeline

Robert Bullen Way -Rosseau between Hoka and Madeline.

Walter Nilsson WayWebster Ave between Dugald Rd and Copeland St

Jack Wright Way- Leola St between Harvard Ave E and Whittier Ave E 

Lavana Sorokowski WayHorton Ave E between Day St and Wabasha St

John Cochrane WayRavelston Ave W between Hoka St and Madeline St 

Peter Frejuk Way- Cloverdale Cres between Kildare Ave W and Brewster St

 

If you know of a WWII Veteran who currently resides within Transcona please let Peter know by sending him an email at branch7@shaw.ca  subject  attn Peter Martin-Veterans. Please provide the name and as much information as you can about the Veteran as well as your contact information. Peter will be in contact with you / our Veterans once it is physically safe to.

Let us all remember the tragic losses that have taken place in our Country and continue to recognize the hard work that our Armed Forces-RCMP-Police-Fire Fighters-Ambulance -Front Line and Essential Workers continue to do for us.

Poppy Campaign

To: Veterans, Members of Branch #7 and our Community

From: Tanya Bishop-Chairperson Poppy Committee

 

As we are approaching our kick off to this year’s Poppy Campaign, we wanted to provide an update to this year’s activities. As we all are aware, there have been many changes to our daily lives due to the pandemic. Not only has this put a great deal of pressure on our Legion, it also has impacted this year’s campaign activities.

This year our campaign runs from Friday October 30 thru November 10th. Normally we have canvassing at 8 locations however this year we will only be canvassing at 1. We will continue to deliver donation boxes to businesses throughout the community.

 

Our location for canvassing is at Costco on Regent. We will be canvassing daily with shifts starting at 10am on Friday October 30th and running every day until 8pm on November 10th. There will be 5 – 2hr shifts each day starting at 10am and ending at 8pm.  We will not have canvassers on the entrance side but instead will have a table setup on the exit side of the vestibule. The table will allow for physical separation between canvassers and contributors. Masks will be required and hand sanitizer will also be provided.

If you are able to volunteer your time to this important campaign please stop in at the Branch and place your name on the sign-up sheet across from the Bar. If you are unable to stop in please call us at the Branch 204 222-9951 leave your name, telephone number and the shifts you may be available for. One of our Volunteers will be in contact with you.
