Branch 614 has a NEW member  by the Name of Susanne Thomas

Susanne make little Angels and has sent over 10,000.00 of them to our Troops! This is what the card says inside of :little sleeve


Being totally blind and in a wheelchair has presented some interesting challenges. But, in my 64 years, I have learned that you give thanks to people who have helped you along the way.  I am just one of many who truly feel that all of the men and women who server our country are our heroes. A hero is someone who puts their lives ahead of others to make this world a better place.

You are our heroes. My prayers are what keep me going.  And all of you are in our prayer. We are so proud of the job you are doing. I have learned that the world is what you make of it. Because of your sacrifice and caring, we are living in a much safer world.   Upon becoming a branch member of 614 – Susanne presented branch members with a little angel. Susanne has donated special angels that are now available at the bar for a $5.00 donation  All proceeds from these little angels will go to Branch 614.

Vimy Ridge 90th Anniversary

On Easter Sunday, April 9, 1917, 100,000 Canadian soldiers stormed and captured Vimy Ridge in France. It was one of the great victories of World War I. Although the cost to Canada was high – 3,600 dead and more than 7,000 wounded – historians say this victory marked the birth of Canada as a nation.


On Easter Sunday April 9th, 2007 an Ecumenical Commemoration Service was held at the Agincourt Pentecostal Church in Scarborough to commemorate the battle of Vimy Ridge.
Members from various faiths offered prayers and RCL Branch 614 WW2 Veteran William Whitehead (at left) spoke on the importance of why we remember. Wreaths were laid by members of all levels of government along with RCL Branch 614 President Sheila Harris. The colours were proudly carried by members of the Zone D5 Colour Guard. Canon Prue Chambers, RCL Zone D5 Chaplain (above in white) gave the blessing.



A reception followed the service at which time a presentation was made by The Honorable Gerry Phillips M.P.P. Scarborough Agincourt, to RCL Branch 614 President Sheila Harris. The plaque commemorates the Vimy Ridge battle and highlights the newly opened Veteran memorial wall on the Ontario Legislature. grounds. Shown at right from left to right, MPP Gerry Phillips, RCL Branch 614 President Sheila Harris, MPP Bas Balkissoon, Scarborough Rouge River and MPP Wayne Arthurs Pickering-Ajax -Uxbridge.


Posted around the reception room were many hand drawn posters and poems and letters that were prepared by students from the five Scarborough Public Schools. It was an amazing and moving display from the point of view of the students reflecting on the great sacrifices made by the Canadian soldiers in the battle for Vimy Ridge 90 years ago. Poster at left by a Grade 6 pupil signed Regan.



Thanks to Pastor Jim McKenzie and volunteers from the Agincourt Pentecostal Church and to the staff and volunteers from the Office of the Honourable Jim Karygiannis. M.P. Scarborough Agincourt for arranging for this Commemoration Service.
