Royal Canadian Legions
We're fortunate to have 4 Royal Canadian Legion Branches here in the Municipality of Chester. They provide wonderful places for people to gather, connect with neighbours and celebrate community spirit.
From seasonal fundraisers and town meetings to family reunions and wedding receptions, community breakfasts and BBQs, New Year's levees, and Remembrance Day services - they play host to countless events all year round.
Legion Branches are the cornerstones of our communities - and we encourage everyone to visit them to discover all they have to offer. For more information on each branch just click on their name to be connected with their respective Facebook page.

"The Royal Canadian Legion was founded by Veterans and for Veterans. We advocate for the care and benefits of all who served Canada, regardless of when or where they served. The Legion also provides representation and assistance to Veterans, including those currently serving Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP, and their families, and access to our services are available to them at no cost, whether or not they are Legion members. The Legion helps thousands of Veterans each year and makes significant positive changes in their lives.
The Legion understands the importance of honouring past sacrifices and acknowledging the courage of those who served and still serve today. Through Remembrance Day ceremonies, the Poppy campaign, commemorative activities, youth education programs, and more, the Legion helps Canadians to honour and remember.
Legion Branches are the cornerstone of communities across Canada and provide one of the largest volunteer bases in the country. With 1,400 Branches from coast to coast to coast, our members provide local services and support to build a stronger Canada. Whether helping local Veterans, supporting seniors, providing youth sports programs, raising funds, volunteering to help those in need, or simply offering a place to gather for fun and celebration, Legionnaires provide essential services in their communities."
