RCL Branch seeks remaining veterans of WW2
Contact: 753-9820
The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 56 Pleasantville is calling all remaining members of World War Two to identify themselves to the Branch - whether or not they are a Legion member - because the Branch has a very special invitation for them.

On July 2nd, 2021, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 56 Pleasantville is hosting A NIGHT AT THE USO and are inviting any World War Two veteran, plus their companion, to attend for free and be honoured for their service.

A NIGHT AT THE USO features a steak-and-lobster dinner, a silent auction, and entertainment, hosted in the Pleasantville Branch's historic 80-year-old ballroom, which was first built as part of the US Army base in 1942. Featuring entertainment from Broadway's Petrina Bromley and the Royal Newfoundland Regiment Band, the evening will pay special tribute to the contribution of our World War Two veterans and provide them with a ceremonial entrance and place of honour during the event.

The evening will also raise needed funds for Branch capital improvements.

Royal Canadian Navy veteran and lifetime Legion member Rod Deon will turn 100 years old that day and is the inspiration for the event.

Contact information for World War Two veterans may be forwarded to or by calling the Branch at 709-753-9820. The Branch will then connect with each Veteran to issue their invitation and discuss any transportation and accessibility requirements in order to make their attendance possible.
