City celebrates Leduc Legion Branch No. 108 as a new sponsorship partner

Wednesday, October 27, 2021

The City of Leduc is pleased to announce the Leduc Legion Branch No. 108 as a new sponsor of the Leduc Recreation Centre second floor multipurpose room, now officially named the Legion Room.

The corporate sponsorship agreement will take effect in November 2021 and will span a two-year term. Previously used as a restaurant amenity, the new Legion Room overlooks the west twin arena and will be available for public bookings at the Leduc Recreation Centre.

“The Royal Canadian Legion is Canada’s largest veteran support and community service organization and we are proud to welcome the local Leduc Legion Branch as a naming rights sponsor at the Leduc Recreation Centre,” says City of Leduc Mayor Bob Young. “As user groups and members of the community book space in the Legion Room, we hope they are also reminded of the important role that veterans and active serving first responders play in our community.”

In many communities, Legion branches are a cornerstone organization and provide one of the largest volunteer bases in the country. In total, there are more than 1,350 branches in Canada with 248,000 members. Locally, the Legion is active in serving Leduc, Leduc County and surrounding communities through outreach programs, family assistance and support initiatives, peer support for Veterans and first responders, and championing national campaigns, like the Poppy Campaign, each year.

“Since 1931, the Leduc Branch No. 108 of The Royal Canadian Legion has been serving veterans, families and community events in Leduc and Leduc County. On our 90th anniversary, we are proud to partner with the City of Leduc to sponsor this space in the Leduc Recreation Centre, continuing our collaboration and supporting even more programming for our community,” says Lynda Cuppens, Branch President.
