Covid restrictions are starting to lift, and we’ve had a lot of success welcoming back our members and friends to our Saturday Patio openings.
We want to take this to the next step by opening the Branch to indoor comradeship; however we need some volunteers to make this happen. While provincial restrictions allow us to open the branch, there are several rules we need to follow, and we need your support to do so.
Observers to help ensure Covid rules are being followed
Relief on the register
Sanitization of dining area
Sign-in/out for Covid tracing
Help in the kitchen with preparation and cleaning
Help with drive-thru dinners
Until we can follow the rules in place, we cannot open the Branch to indoor activities. Thanks to all those who are already giving their time to support Branch openings. We look forward to seeing everyone more often now that restrictions are lifting.

As summer time approaches the New Hamburg Legion will be scaling back operating hours. This has been a challenging year for all of us, and we’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all who supported the Branch this past year.
We had a very successful series of drive-thru dinners, the funds of which helped support Branch operations and the local community. It was needed this year more than others. Also thank you to everyone that bought 50/50 tickets that helped raise over $12,000 for the Branch and the local Firebirds hockey team.
Our drive-thru dinners will pause until the fall, but we do plan to host events on the patio throughout the summer once COVID restrictions allow. Keep watching the web site, Facebook, Twitter for details. Also watch for announcements on Branch Executive elections that we anticipate holding this year.
Finally, we haven’t forgotten our 16 new members that have joined the Branch during the pandemic. We want to take time to welcome them properly at the next opportunity.
We wish everyone a safe and happy summer season and we look forward to seeing everyone in the fall for camaraderie.
We all miss getting together at the New Hamburg Legion for comradeship. This is just a short note to let you know that the Branch Executive is working hard to make sure that when restrictions are lifted, we will be ready to welcome everyone back.
This group has now graciously stayed on as Executive members a full year beyond their planned tenure, taking care of the day-to-day Branch activities, maintaining upkeep of the building, and even hosting regular Branch dinners (drive thru when necessary)!
We’re not sure when the next Executive elections will occur, but thanks to everyone currently on the Executive for their continued support and commitment. The picture above is from our last Executive meeting (via Zoom) held on 25 Feb.
