On October 17, 1944 the Ladies Auxiliary in Ladner was started by dedicated wives of our soldiers both here at home and overseas. The main objective was to help and support young men through our Royal Canadian Legion.
As the years have progressed the Ladies Auxiliary have put on dinners, dances, raffles, etc. raising monies for many charities such as:
- Children’s Hospital
- Heart & Stroke
- Cancer Society
- Disaster Relief through the Red Cross
- George Derby Vetrans Centre
- Multiple Schlorosis
On our local front we give monies for:
- School Bursaries
- Delta Hospital
- Christmas Hampers
- Delta Pipe Band
- Plus many local charities
- We also volunteer our services to our Branch when requested.
We cater all funerals, D.Day, and Remembrance Day. We also serve three luncheons throughout the year for the Vets at George Derby Centre. Our annual functions through which we raise monies are our “Beef on a Bun” during May Days, Western Nite Dinner & Dance at the end of September and put on a “Christmas Lunch with Santa” yearly.
Our meetings are every second Wednesday of the month (excluding July and August).
We gladly welcome new members – applications may be obtained from any of our friendly bar staff at the Legion or download a copy here.
