Year of the Veteran
We have a games room offering pool , shuffleboard, darts, cribbage, euchre and a big screen TV. We host a variety of events all year round. Our lounge has live entertainment on selected weekends, and has a large dance floor.
Friday is our famous “Steak Night”, and Saturday afternoon we have our weekly meat draw. Upstairs is an auditorium with full kitchen facilities available for meetings, dinners, dances and conferences.
The Sooke Legion Branch 54 hosts a parade for V.E. Day and Remembrance Day November 11. The Legion also sponsors Youth Sports, Seniors Housing, and has donated over $20,000 to Veterans in need, bursaries, charities, and other causes every year.
The Legion is active in the community, being a dynamic role model for our youth. The year 2001 was an active year, with the Consecration of Colours and the visit of the Honorable Garde B. Gardom, Lieutenant-Governor of BC, and our 75th Anniversary. Events for 2005 promise to be as entertaining as ever!
