  Administration

The majority of the Veteran’s live in or around the St. John’s area and meet for a Dinner Meeting on the 3rd Tuesday of each Month, except July and August. Once a year the Executive makes a cross island tour in November – Dinner meetings at two locations and meetings at two others and ends with participation at the local Remembrance Day Parade.

Tradition and heritage events

  • We make a point to attend wakes and funerals for Retired Members and/or their families in groups, dressed in red serge or red/blue veteran’s blazer. This honour to our fallen colleagues is well noted by the community at large.
  • Twice a year, our members assist in serving meals to the homeless in St. John’s. It is well organized and appreciated by the community.
