Okotoks Legion Branch # 291

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.
