The Royal Canadian Legion Henderson Highway Branch #215
One of the principles on which The Royal Canadian Legion was founded is a solemn remembrance of Canadians who gave their lives so our nation might be free. Their most important responsibility is maintaining the tradition of Remembrance in Canada.
The Annual Poppy-Remembrance Campaign is an opportunity to remind Canadians of the men and women who died during military service. It is also the major public fund-raising blitz for the Legion–money raised from the poppy campaign can only be used for service, ex-service personnel and their dependents or authorized community service projects.
Membership: Everyone is welcome; no military affiliation is required. Anyone can become a fraternal member without being a veteran. Come on by see the activities and feel the fun. Becoming a member is easy. Fill out a form or call any of the contact people listed below for more information. Initiation is your 1st step in joining your Legion Family.

We, the Henderson Legion 215 Canada Day Planning Committee are SO THANKFUL & Completely Filled with Gratitude for all the Businesses who have stepped forward to Sponsor and Co-Sponsor all the Activities that we booked for July 1st, 1-6pm!!🎉
If you see any of the following Businesses please give them a High Five 🖐 for us!! It really takes the pressure off our little committee to know that the activities are paid for all thanks to their Generosity!!!! ❤️
Next step, our committee has to focus on gathering up Silent Auction Prizes for the Canada Day Draw
Believe it or not, the Canada Day Celebration is Completely FREE for Everyone to come and Enjoy!!
We set it that way since the very first year back in 2014.
On average the party cost around $10,000+ every year, therefore it is important to me to chip in where ever I can to make sure that the Legion doesn’t get stuck holding the Bill$ We are very fortunate that others feel the same way
Many Families have told us that they LOVE it this way! They don’t have to bring a ton of cash to ensure their children are treated equally and can enjoy all the activities.
As many of you know it is common practice to sell wrist bands at these kinds of events.
WE hope to never have to do that!!
