Legion Poppy Logo

The West Smoky Legion #244 has two primary goals; Remembrance & support for our troops and veterans, as well as community development. Looking around the community you will find us filling many different roles including:

  • Facilitating Remembrance Day Events such as poppy distribution, Remembrance Day services and contests
  • Veterans dinner and recognition awards
  • Donating money to community members in need such as house fire victims and hospitalized individuals
  • Donating to our local schools (Bezanson & PWA) and clubs such as 4H & Youth Group
  • Donating to other community groups including the Bezanson Volunteer Fire Department and Ag Society
  • Donating to Organizations such as War Amps, Ronald McDonald House, Victims Assistance, Odyssey House and the Stollery Children’s Hospital
  • Providing the Legion Hut free of charge to community for showers and funeral lunches
  • Sponsoring activities for kids such as summer swimming lessons for the past 45-50 years and ski lessons
  • Organizing community events such as the annual mixed bonspiel and golf tournament
  • Sponsor of the Bezanson horse show judges and junior prizes

 

The Bezanson Legion could use your support. More hands make for less work, a more successful Legion and a more successful community.

How can you help?

  • Facilitate community events or programs for children in our community. Volunteer your time to an existing program or start a new one!
  • Participate in fundraisers, including selling tickets at kiosks, working casino nights or organizing events such as the Golden Leaf Dine & Dance.
  • Assist in remembrance activities such as school drawing & essay contest and the poppy campaign.
  • Take a position on the board. We always welcome new members!
