Welcome to Branch 238!

The Fenelon Falls Legion, Branch 238, is located in Fenelon Falls, the Jewel of the Kawarthas. It was established in 1932, and has been a centre-point of the community ever since.

Today, membership in the Branch is over 500. The primary mission of the Legion is to serve veterans and their dependents, promote Remembrance and act in the service of Canada and its communities. But it does not stop there.

We at Fenelon Falls Branch 238 are a proud fun loving group. If you are looking for a place to go to socialize, and be part of community outreach service, you found it. Although our prime concern is the veterans that have given so much for us, all Legions reach out to their communities at all levels of need and ours is no exception. We donate thousands of dollars every year to all age levels and needs and interests.

As a member you can, if so inclined, be part of various events to raise monies for these services or just come and join in with our many fun focused activities. We have something going almost every day. For some time now it has been the policy of all Royal Canadian Legions to encourage ALL individuals to join whether there is an armed service background or not. So you are welcome to step up and join us.

If you want to meet us first, we have many public functions that welcome everyone to participate, after which you can decide if our Branch is where you can see yourself and family joining in. I encourage you to drop by to say hello, check out what we are up to and join in as my special guest.

Our Fundraising Efforts

The Legion in the Community Although the Legion was founded to advance the cause of veterans, its grass-roots structure led naturally to community service.
