Since years, the Royal Canadian Legion has been serving and caring for those who have served and fought for the country as well as their dependents. Concentrating mainly on the welfare and well being of veterans of the numerous wars that have plagued our world, the Legion provides financial assistance, moral support and even an attentive ear to these heroes. The Calgary #1 branch also serves as a place for these veterans to hang out, have a cup of coffee and chat with friends, and it even organizes various events that provide entertainment on a regular basis. Among the activities organized are sports events, cultural events and a host of other activities that keep the heroes and their friends and relatives entertained.
