Cowichan Legion needs your help

To all members of the Cowichan community:

Re: Community sppeal from the Royal Canadian Legion Br #53 Cowichan

Each year Legion members contribute over 600,000 hours to community causes.

At its heart, RCL Branch #53 Cowichan is a non-profit organization allowing for people to gather and feel connected to their neighbours, offering support to seniors and schools in our community, organizing commemorative ceremonies, promoting Remembrance and more.

Volunteering with the Legion means giving your time and talent to a cause you believe in, respecting and supporting veterans and their families past, present and future. It’s a wonderful way to get to know your neighbour and make a meaningful contribution in your community.

We are currently experiencing a decline in our membership and financial challenges, which are affecting our purpose and the ability to support our veterans programs and local community initiatives.

Whether your background includes working with people, fundraising, event organizing, money management, social media or strategic business planning, we would like to hear from you!

If you are interested to learn more and help out, please come into our branch, or reach out by phone at 250-746 5013, or by e-mail at We appreciate your consideration, and look forward to hearing from you.

Richard Steele, head trustee
