There is an unfortunate rumor circulating that the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 108 Chateauguay has gone bankrupt. We wish to dispel this rumor and reassure our members and the community that there is no truth to this. Like any group, we are constantly striving to improve our ability to serve our members and the community and this may sometimes require making necessary cutbacks and/or restructuring decisions. We have many upcoming events and our hall is available for rental at a reasonable rate. Please visit our web site at to learn more or drop by for a visit at 39 Gilmour to check it out for yourself.
