  • Dresden Legion Branch 113 Ladies Auxiliary

    During the 1914-1918 war years as wounded veterans returned home, women were asked to help with their recovery by visiting hospitals, sending parcels to the hospitalized and to needy families.

Major contributors to the day-to-day life of Legion Branches, Ladies’ Auxiliaries provide financial and volunteer support to Legion programs. The Ladies’ Auxiliary (LA) is a non-profit organization operated separate from The Royal Canadian Legion… but together they thrive. Most, but not all, Legion Branches have Ladies Auxiliaries.
