Family heavily involved with Terrace Legion

Branch #13, Terrace, of The Royal Canadian Legion and the name Kirkaldy go hand in hand.

When this Branch was established Jock Kirkaldy was the Charter President and his son Sam was the Charter Secretary.

Both gentlemen remained involved throughout their lifetimes. Lawrence (Bud) Kirkaldy, Sam’s son, joined the Legion after time spent in the Navy and held many Executive positions.

Three generations of Kirkaldys were not the end of the line. Brian Kirkaldy – son, grandson and great-grandson have carried on the great tradition of service to Veterans and the community.

Brian has been on the Executive for many years in various positions including President and was the Zone Commander for the whole Northwestern area.

Presently and for the immediate past years, Brian has been the Treasurer of the Branch and continues the tradition of the Kirkaldy family in service to Veterans and to the community.

On behalf of Veterans and the community, thank-you Brian.

Coming up this week end the Branch is hosting the Zone Meeting for the Northwest and all members are invited to attend 9 a.m. April 26 at the Branch. If you cannot make the meeting, join us for the Meat Draw commencing at 4 p.m. and/or an extra Steak Dinner this month at 6:30 that same evening followed by the music of Retro Hotflash  for dancing or listening. There is no cover charge for the music.  All  members and bona fide guests warmly welcomed.

Don’t forget the Garage Sale on May 10 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. All donations appreciated.
