Special one-of-a-kind quilts, provided by the ‘Quilts of Valour’ program, were presented by Legion members of Branch 228 in Stirling to retired Veterans at the Stirling Manor Nursing Home. It was a brief but touching ceremony organized by the Legion branch. A total of seven retired veterans were honoured that weekend – One way our Poppy Funds are being used in support of Veterans.
.
“The gift of these quilts is to provide warmth and comfort to our injured armed forces members and to our veterans. As well as expressing a very small ‘thank you’ to them for the sacrifices they have made so that we are able to live in peace and freedom in this wonderful country.”
.
Les Hunter, a recipient, responded by saying, “I just can’t believe it. This is just wonderful that the Legion is thinking of us and remembering us… especially at this time of year. This is a very special Christmas gift.”

Are you interested in the @legionnationals Track and Field Championships or growing as a track and field athlete? Give this open letter from Legion Nationals Champion Jenna Flemming to Branch 374 a read!
.
This past summer marked my third and final time representing our local legion, District H, and the Ontario Command at the Legion track and field meets. This legion has been with me in every step of my journey.
.
From my first time going to the district meet in Sudbury seven years ago, to my last time at the Legion National Championships this summer, I have always been excited to represent our local Legion. Every time I go to a Legion meet, I am supported by countless Legion members that dedicate their time to youth like me. Without their support there would be no way I could be where I am as an athlete or as a person.
.
They showed me how to be kind, respectful and how to preserve. For this, I will forever be grateful. 
Looking back, I would have never imagined where a pointy metal stick would take me. The past three years I have reached to new levels in my life and athletic career.
.
I have had the opportunity to participate not only at the District meets but at the Ontario Command meets and Legion National Championships.
.
In 2016, 2017 and 2018 I was successful in winning javelin at the Provincial Championships and was selected to be part of a team that would represent Ontario at the National meets.
.
This year for the first time I earned the title of National Champion. People often look at the front of an athlete. They see the colourful ribbons and the flashy metals but they’re missing something. They never see what is behind the athlete and the success.
.
My success in these events would not have been possible without the constant support that the island and this legion have given me. There’s a saying “it takes a village to raise a child”. A small town girl was not given just the support of a village but an entire island.
.
I believe this is the reason I have been able to take my love of track and field to such heights. You have held my hand and given me more than I could ever ask for. Thank You!
.

We have service officers across the country who reach out to help Veterans get assistance that many don't know is available. A group of Royal Canadian Legion Veteran service officers in Kitchener are doing just that. Their help ranges from assisting with filling out Veterans Affairs benefit claim forms, to getting homeless Veterans off the streets, to accessing emergency financial support, to referring Veterans with PTSD to community services, and more.
.
“What we are trying to do is build that link to find these Veterans in need and their dependents and stream those resources to them.”

Thank you, Legion Members.
