PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Another month has passed and we still have some executive positions
open that require an out going person to fill. We need a 2nd vice
president. Our gaming chair has had to step down for personal
reasons. We still need volunteers to chair the“Sick and Visiting” and
“Membership” Committees. We will be holding another election at our
general meeting on the 21st of Mar at 2 pm to ask for nominees to
fill these positions. The results will be posted in the General meeting
minutes in the pub as soon as possible after the meeting.
Our line up of entertainment for the next month look really good and
I urge you to attend the events of your choosing as we strive to
make our pub and Legion an entertaining place to gather and
socialize.Please call the office at 250,339-2022 or email me @

SPORTS TEAM SPONSORSHIP
Hello members and friends,
Currently the Comox Legion/Beaufort Ave Pub sponsors

It has been very beneficial to both parties. We would
like to sponsor another adult sports team.
If you know a local team looking for sponsorship please
email Emma at branch160office@comoxlegion.ca

They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old; age shall not

UPDATES

SERVICE OFFICER REPORT

Recently in the news there have been articles about Settlement Approval on class action lawsuits against VAC that involved veteran benefits. While I will list some that may pertain to you, this list is not exhaustive and I would suggest you search and read if they apply to you. A. Veterans’ benefits lawsuit was settled in 2021 B. Supplementary Retirement Benefits settled in 2022
C. Disability benefit for injured veterans given a medical discharge was announced in September 2023 D. Underpayment of certain disability benefits was settled; however, paperwork will be made available Nov 8, 2023.

For info visit: vetspensionerror.ca I constantly check various new organizations' websites: CBC, CTV and others. As well you can and should check the VAC website, the Salute newsletter and the Legion website. Usually VAC will send an email to you on its messaging platform, that you have a claim for settlement. That is how
I received mine for the Underpayment Class action Lawsuit. But do check yourself.
Lastly, I would ask that you read the Legion Veteran Disability Guide 2023 http://www.legionmagazine.com/guide/
Any questions please email me at: serviceofficer@comoxlegion.ca

Until next month, cheers,

Donald Bourne

POPPY CHAIR REPORT

I made an error with the Poster & Literary Youth Remembrance Day Contest at École Robb Road so back we went on March 14th and presented Gus Harris with his Certificate and monetary award, I had Gus over at Brooklyn School, this was done by President Gerry, Photographer Nancy and myself. Then we were
to Brooklyn Assembly on March 14th and did Certificates and awards as well there. We received a warm welcome at both places. Now, end of March the Bursary Applications will be coming in and a committee for picking the winners will be needed, so please call or email me, I need help. Remember, I retired in December 2023. Inventory of Poppy Room done and replacement supplies ordered.
Val Greenlaw,
Poppy Chair;
