Redevelopment Plan Cancelled

At a general meeting on June 27, 2012, the membership passed the following resolution: “That Branch 6 enter into an Exchange Agreement with Townline Housing and the City of Surrey, where our Branch would exchange our present location for a 10,000 sq. ft. building with $1,000,000 of tennant improvements and 1,800 sq. ft. of commercial retail space”.

At the general meeting on September 25, 2014, representatives of Townline Housing and the City of Surrey Development Corporation informed the members that the agreement with the Legion to include the Legion in the phase 1 development has been cancelled. They may offer to include us in one of the next four development phases, which they expect will take place over the next 7 1/2 to 10 years.

TAPS Online

The current TAPS newsletter is available online. Just click on the 'TAPS' Newsletter link on the left, and it will take you to a page where you can download the file.

If you would prefer to have TAPS e-mailed to you, just send an e-mail to the Editor at patricksharkey@shaw.ca. We can remove you from our "snail mail" (Canada Post) mailing list and add you to our e-mail list instead. That way you get the TAPS sooner and we save on the cost of postage.

Time for Change

The Dominion Membership & Outreach Committee Chairmen have written a letter to all Legion members and Branch executives, underscoring the need for change within our Branches… change to make every Legion Branch a welcoming, inclusive, vibrant cornerstone of the community. Every member should read this letter.

Youth Remembrance Video Contest

Let’s have a major drum roll and grand applause for our 2013 winners of the BC/Yukon Youth Remembrance Video Contest!

Comrades, this competition just gets better and better each year. With 30 video entries, making the selection was not an easy task for the Youth Committee and our President. The diversity of talent and artistic expression add to the judging challenges, but these are good challenges to have.

View the winners on our Youtube Playlist: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlqG2DVRYcTZdjGYwiNeNZYlhFEWbIsIA.
