Royal Canadian Legion Branch 60’s Honour Our Veterans Banner Program Returns for 2021

STOCK_Burlington Veteran Banner Program_01

The Royal Canadian Legion – Burlington Branch 60 is bringing back its Honour Our Veterans banner program for 2021.

In 2019, in the weeks leading up to Remembrance Day, the Legion placed colourful banners on lightposts lining the streets in downtown Burlington, around City Hall, that honoured local veterans and their families.

This year, the banners will once again be displayed along Brant Street and Lakeshore Road, 3-4 weeks prior to Remembrance Day (Nov. 11) and will remain up for a few days afterwards.

Each banner is 24 inch (61 cm) by 52 inch (132 cm) and there are 30 lightpost spots available.

For more details on the veteran banner program and how to obtain one, please visit http://burlingtonlegion.com/bboard.htm.

The deadline for the Legion to have the banners manufactured is the second week of September, so be sure to contact them before then.

The Royal Canadian Legion – Branch 60 is located at 828 Legion Rd. and can be reached by phone at 905-639-6400 (office)or905-639-6060(lounge), or by email at CanadianLegion60@bellnet.ca

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
