Honours & Awards
The Oakville Branch of the Ladies Auxiliary had their first meeting on April 22, 1942. There were only 22 members in our group at that time. Our association and link with the Royal Canadian Legion, Oakville Branch 114 has continued all these years.
Membership to the Ladies Auxiliary is open to all females 19 years of age and over. Applications are available at the Branch – please enquire with the Steward on duty.
We promote comradeship and the making of new friendships. Meetings are held monthly and special events and sports activities keep our members busy and involved. Our aims and goals are to volunteer our services and to assist and support the Branch. Some of the ways that this is done include assisting in the Poppy Campaign and Remembrance Day Services as well as providing luncheons and preparing food for special branch events. We assist the branch with preparations and service for the Annual Veterans Dinner, fund raisers, Bazaars, holiday and special sporting day celebrations.
All proceeds made in our fund raiser activities are donated back to Charities and local aid/assistance organizations within the Oakville area.
Auxiliary meetings are scheduled from September through June each year. They are held every 2nd Tuesday of the month with meetings starting at 7:00 pm and lasting to approximately 9:00 pm. On our regular meeting nights we sometimes have Pot Luck Dinners and/or Socials.
There is lots of fun and comradeship to be had throughout the year as all Auxiliary members are encouraged to participate in our Sports Programs of Euchre, Cribbage and Darts. These events are played against other Auxiliary branches from within our Zone B7 area and are for fun, good sportsmanship and competition. There are tournament events that qualify you (and/or your team) to go in competition at the Zone and District levels. For the very good players/teams, there is the chance of advancement to Provincial competitions. We also hold a “Fun Sports Day” which is held each year and is hosted by one of the Auxiliary groups within Zone B7.
