Legion Halls

Most small towns and villages in Canada have at least one Legion Hall. Often the Legion Hall is a major community centre, combining the functions of a pub, pool hall, dance hall, bingo hall, banquet hall, and so on. These are also known as “branches”. Legion Halls are numbered, for example “Branch 99 Royal Canadian Legion”. This is not a nationwide numbering system as you might expect, however; each provincial Command has its own numerical sequence. “Branch 99”, therefore, can refer to any of several Legion Halls, as follows: Belleville, Ontario; Cowansville, Quebec; Lipton/Dysart, Saskatchewan; Coronation, Alberta (a branch that has closed); or Emo, Ontario (in the Manitoba/Northwestern Ontario Command).

Royal Canadian Legion Maple Leaf Post-84 is located in Royal Oak, Michigan.
