The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 60

The history of our Branch dates back to 1919, when The Great War Veterans Association formed a branch in West Vancouver. Col. A.J. Coote convinced the members of The Great War Veterans Association, they should join the Canadian Legion. On June 28 they formed the West Vancouver Branch. Our Charter was received on November 17, 1926. The Branch had fifteen members, dues were set at twenty-five cents per month and the initiation fee was one dollar. Meetings were held in the upstairs hall of the Ferry Building, a practice that continued until 1930. Over the years, as the membership grew, it was clear that Branch 60 required their own premises. The Municipality made tax sale land available, and construction was started on the Legion Hall. Volunteers cleared the land and did the construction under the supervision of Building Contractor, Colin Turner. In 1957, a South African Veteran, Joe Chamberlain, made the first group of white crosses to mark the veterans graves at Capilano View Cemetery. These were placed on Remembrance Day. This practice continues today, with cemetery staff and Legion members placing more than nine hundred crosses in November 2009. In 1990 the building was raised three feet and the lounge was completely renovated. This project was made possible by a bequest from Norm Jorgeson. A building contractor did the major work, along with many hours of volunteer labour from our members. A culvert over Lawson Creek enabled the Branch to double its parking space.

Please be advised that the mask mandate has just now been reintroduced in indoor public settings in BC and is in effect. "This will include malls, shopping centers, coffee shops, retail and grocery stores, liquor and drug stores, city halls, libraries, community and recreation centers, restaurants, pubs and bars – unless you are seated once you're at your table" Henry said.
It also applies to public transit, taxi and ride-sharing vehicles, common areas of sports and fitness centers, and "areas of office buildings where services are provided to the public"
Masks must be worn at all times unless seated. Medical exemptions are permitted under the mask mandate.
Under the Health Order people who cant wear a mask or put one on wihtout the assistance of others are exempt.
Masks may be taken off temporarily for identification, to eat or to drink at dining locations or when particiating in a physical activity.

Vaccination Passport Protocol:
We are required under a provincial Health Order to ensure that all customers have been vaccinated before they can be served at our establishment.
Beginning September 13, we will be asking for your proof of vaccination – your BC Vaccine Card – and a piece of government-issued photo ID.
To give everyone time to get their BC Vaccine Card, from September 13 to 26 you can show other forms of proof of vaccination, including your British Columbia COVID-19 Immunization Record Card.
After September 26, you must show a digital version or print a paper copy of your BC Vaccine Card. For more information on how to obtain your BC Vaccine Card, please visit: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/vaccinecard.html
You must have your first shot by September 13 and your second shot by October 24 in order to continue to be served in our establishment.
We will not be tracking or recording anyone’s personal health information, so customers will be asked to complete the verification process every time they enter our establishment.
We understand this is a contentious issue, but we must abide by provincial health guidelines.
Thank you for helping us comply with the public order and treating our staff with kindness and respect.
If you have concerns about the proof of vaccination, we encourage you to contact the Provincial Health Officer and your local MLA.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
