We will never forget, and the Peachland Legion Branch #69 plays an essential role in ensuring our town knows and appreciates the sacrifice of all veterans. They do a lot more than hand out poppies and provide veterans’ support – in addition to their important role
during Remembrance Day ceremonies at the community centre, the Peachland Legion contributes to many local groups. Most recently, they made a donation towards the repair of the historic mural across from Heritage Park, which was damaged by vandals. And after some renovations and repairs to their building (at 4407 2 St.) over the past few years, the Peachland Legion’s
restaurant has become a popular spot to sit and have a meal.
There will be important focus this year on commemorating the 75th anniversary of Canadian Troops liberating Holland, which happened on May 2, 1945 – an occasion especially poignant as we lose more of our veterans from those years.

Here’s the latest from the Legion:
The Legion is re-opening June 1! Seating will be spaced out of course, and for this first week, it’ll be members and spouses only.
“We would like to thank you all for your patience and understanding during the past couple of months….We can do this together and make this all work,” says a post on their Facebook page.
