Members of the Chomedey’s Branch 251 of the Royal Canadian Legion will be holding a morning-long breakfast to mark its 50th anniversary, on Saturday, April 13.
“We need to get the word out so that no one is disappointed,” emphasized Legion spokesman Gilles Deschambeault. “We can only accommodate 150 people, and the event is already nearly half sold-out, without any publicity whatsoever.”
Deschambeault said that the breakfast will run from nine to noon and will feature a slide show of historic photos recounting club activities during its first half-century.
“We will also have on hand for people to examine the book recording the branch’s first meeting, Nov. 5, 1963,” he said.
The club’s membership of more than 200 includes some young, modern-day veterans of Afghanistan.
Deschambeault added that the Chomedey Legion also plans a dance and supper to mark its semi-centennial, Oct. 5.
“We expect to have special guests from outside Laval join us for that occasion,” he said.
In the meantime, he urged those who wish to attend the April 13 breakfast to reserve without delay, either by visiting the branch’s premises at 2000 Curé Labelle, or by phoning 450-681-6722.
