The Okotoks Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion #291, was given its charter in December 2014. This opened the door to the Town of Okotoks veterans having a specific place to go and be with their comrades in an atmosphere of military camaraderie. Currently we are the guests of the Elks hall on Elizabeth Street, but are hoping to have a permanent home very soon.
To Support our veterans, young and old!

IMPORTANT MESSAGE - MEMBERSHIPS 2018
This is an important message to our members. If you have not renewed your membership yet and wish to do so please contact Bev Lee at email@example.com.
Membership fees are $60 per person and this is payable now. If you would like to e-transfer please contact Bev or Malcolm Hughes and they will gladly make those arrangements.
It is important to note that after some criticism that we don't have enough social events, we are hoping to improve the amount of social events in the next few months, Part of our problem is the lack of a permanent venue and volunteers. These events take much planning and we need as many volunteers as possible so that the responsibilities don't fall on the same people all the time. Without the volunteers we can't put on the events so please step up and offer some time, any time, to make our wonderful Legion a success. If you would like to attend the games nights but don't want to play the games offered, please suggest new games and or bring a game to play, we are flexible so lets have fun. You have a highly committed team so please support us.
We are really focused on making Okotoks Legion #291 the best Legion around. This takes lots of time and the support of our veterans and members.
There is a GoFundme page set up for donations to our building fund. If you are able to support us in any way it would be gratefully received. Our vision is that we may give our veterans a place to call home, where they might be with other like minded veterans. Our hope is this will become a community facility.
