Royal Canadian Legion Branch 59 hosts ceremony to recognize award recipients

This year’s ceremony one of the best attended, says Comrade Rosalind LaRose.

On Thursday, June 22, Stettler’s Royal Legion Branch 59 hosted an award ceremony for all the winners in the poster and poetry competition.

According to Comrade Rosalind LaRose, District 4 Commander, AB-NWT Command of The Royal Canadian Legion, this year’s awards ceremony was one of the best attended.

“We had a lot of family members of the winners come out for the evening to show support, and of the 31 only four were unable to make it,” LaRose said. “This program that the Legion operates across Canada takes a lot of effort and they work very hard to continue this for students.”

LaRose added that the program gives all participants a chance to think about the significance of Remembrance Day.

“And what an accomplishment we feel seeing their excitement and big smiles,” LaRose commented. “They are so proud and very well should be considering the number of entries that were submitted.”

The Legion Branch 59 level takes all submissions from the County of Stettler; District 4 level competes with 24 legion branches; while at the provincial level, competition is among all the winning entries of the nine Districts, which is 175 legion branches.
