Branch 6 opens its doors for Legion Week

Cloverdale's Royal Canadian Legion Branch 6 welcomes visitors to its June 20 celebration, promising military displays and more.

From displays of authentic military equipment to a pancake breakfast and yummy burgers, there will be plenty to see and sample this Saturday, when Royal Canadian Legion Branch 6 in Cloverdale holds its open house.

Surrey Mayor Linda Hepner has been invited to officially open the June 20 celebration at 11 a.m., marking Legion Week.

Exhibits include real military hardware, from a Ferret Scout Car, BMV Motorcycle and a half track armoured vehicle to a display of military weaponry and artifacts.

The displays and equipment are on loan for the day from various corners, including the Canadian Military Education Centre Museum in Chilliwack and the Canadian Museum of Flight in Langley, which is sending over a First World War Sopworth Camel aircraft.

Check out the bouncy castle, dunk tank and sumo wrestling and learn more about one of the hardest-working community organizations around, the Cloverdale Legion.

Inside, there will be information tables on membership, various cadet corps, legion partners and private collectors, along with a 50-50 draw (proceeds to the Surrey Association for Community Living), pancake breakfast (9 to 11 a.m.), hot dog and hamburger sales from 12:30 to 3 p.m. The event runs to 4 p.m.

June 20 is also Market Day in Cloverdale. Merchants and vendors along 176 Street in the historic town centre will be holding sidewalk sales and more from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
