Whalley Legion Poppy & Remembrance Committee

The Annual Poppy Campaign is the most important fundraiser that the Legion holds for two weeks every November. All members are expected to participate in this important campaign. There are a myriad of jobs including canvassers in malls and shopping centers, area captains delivering and picking up poppy trays, and many other helpers who look after many of the myriad tasks. Included in this is the great deal of work required in preparation for the Remembrance ceremonies. Veterans and ex-service members are especially helpful as speakers in local schools.

Whalley Legion Public Relations Committee

The Legion is one of the best kept secrets out there. Volunteers on the Public Relations committee help plan and organize various ways of advertising who we are and what we have to offer. In addition to regular methods of promoting the Legion, volunteers are needed in the community manning our PR booth at various local events.  

Whalley Legion Sick & Visiting Committee

We all care about our members and our Veterans. On this committee, volunteers assist by visiting local hospitals and homes to show our fellow comrades we care.  

Whalley Legion Building & Grounds Committee

A helping hand is always needed to look after the many small (and large) tasks needed for the upkeep of the Branch. Helpers, not just skilled craftsmen, are always in demand to help our Caretaker in repairs, maintenance and upkeep of our Branch and grounds.  

Whalley Legion Honours & Awards Committee

Recognizing members for their contributions to the Legion is very important. Volunteers on this committee work with the chairperson to identify those recipients deserving of recognition. Organizing and planning the annual awards luncheon is a key function.  

Whalley Legion Sergeant at Arms

The Sergeant at Arms is always looking for those dedicated persons willing to participate in a variety of annual events as a part of the Colour Party. Volunteers will find a great deal of pride and satisfaction from participating.
