Province of Ontario Vaccine Mandate

As of 22 September 2021

The Province of Ontario has mandated that all persons entering a restaurant / bar, MUST show proof of Double Vaccination

Please have your second Dosage Receipt or Mobile Vaccine Passport phone app and ID ready when you enter the Club Room or Banquet Hall so the bartender or volunteer can verify your vaccination status.

Middlesex London Health Unit also requires that patrons must still complete the Covid-19 screening questions even if they are fully vaccinated. The screening survey can be completed on your phone by scanning the QR code displayed at the Legion’s entrances or by going to https://covid-19.ontario.ca/screening/customer/ Good-to-go results will appear as a GREEN CHECKMARK. It can be completed before hand and the results printed or you can email the results to yourself. Good results are valid until 11:59 PM of the day the screen was completed.

Face masks are still required whenever you are not sitting at your table.

You still must supply contact info.

Poppy Donation to Holy Roller Preservation Project

On 17 Mar 2021, the Byron Springbank Legion donated $5,000.00 to the Holy Roller Preservation Project. The HOLY ROLLER tank sits as a memorial in Victoria Park, London, Ontario. This historic tank, landed in one of the first waves on D-Day with the 1st Hussars, helped liberate Europe and miraculously survived to the end of World War II. One of only two Canadian tanks to do so. Holy Roller was moved from Queens Park to Victoria Park in 1956.

Over the years the Holy Roller has deteriorated internally and requires extensive work for it to survive anther 60 years. For more information about the Project go to the website: holyrollermemorial.ca
