Cancelled Events

Around this time of year the Royal Canadian Legion here in Southern California looks forward to two major events.  The first is the Pre-Memorial Day Service that is held at the Inglewood Park Cemetery and the other event is a booth that we set up at the Scottish Festival in Costa Mesa on Memorial Day weekend where we hand out the famous red poppy for people to proudly wear.  Unfortunately the Corona Virus situation has caused us to cancel both events.  Please watch this page for updates on our future meetings.  We hope to see you soon.

The Legion Magazine

Read the article on page 79 in the November/December 2017 issue of The Legion Magazine.  It describes the project that obtained markers for Canadian Veteran’s that are buried in the Inglewood Park Cemetery in Inglewood, California.  Our Zone was instrumental in seeing this project through to completion.

Great Video on the Royal Canadian Legion

Every member should set aside 17 minutes and watch this.  Lots of interesting history and an education on what the Legion is all about.
