Welcome to the Uxbridge Legion.Branch 170 recieved its charter in 1930! Active for almost 85 years, the members have met in various places around town including the old post office, and the old marketplace, and finally in the late 40's establishing the location that continues to this day. The original building burned down in 1953, and was rebuilt. It has since had several renovations. It is notable that most of the work on the legion has been done by volunteers.
Serving veterans and their dependents, promoting Remembrance, and acting in the service of Canada and its communities.
Unfortunately, the Uxbridge Legion Dance on Friday November 25 has been cancelled. This was due to factors beyond our control and we apologize.
If you fancy some local musical talent, don;t forget the Open Mic afternoons every second Sunday!
On Friday, November 11, please join us as we remember those who have served and continue to serve. The parade will gather at the Music Hall and step off at 10:30 am. We will march from the Music Hall , west on Brock Street to the Cenotaph. Along the way, make sure you see all the banners erected to honor all our Veterans, past and present. 132 in all – sight to behold. Lest we forget.
A big thanks to all members organizing things at ‘Poppy HQ’ as well as those brave souls out in all weather distributing poppies. Here’s a glimpse of the well-oiled machine.
