  • Full payment is needed before any order is processed.

11. Remembrance Day Observances

  • November is a very busy time for the corps, during our remembrance observances. Our supporting legions will be looking for our help during the remembrance season. It’s important for us to provide as much assistance as we can, although Hespeler br. 272 is our official sponsor, Galt br.121 provides a lot of support for us during the training year and this is a great way to give back to both legions.     These events are also eligible for volunteer hours.
