Devon Legion Past Executives
2018-03-09
The Royal Canadian Legion Devon Branch No. 247
 The Devon Legion has had a strong history of participation of Branch Members as Executive Officers and Executive Commiittee Chairs. Without a dedicated Executive the operation and existance of the Legion would not be possible. The Executive is typically made up of 5 to 6 Executive Officers and a number of Executive Committee Chairman serving on the Executive Committee positions. The combination of Ordinary Members (Veterans), Associate Members and Affiliate Members on the Devon Legion Branch Executive makes for a team with all the capabilities to meet the mission of the Legion and to provide support to the community in which we live.
