Warriors Weekend takes place in the second weekend in September. During this weekend, we honour the memories and sacrifices of our fallen comrades from former conflicts.
In May, we travel to Jamestown to honour the fallen American soldiers of our sister Legion (Post 777) on their Memorial Day. In September, our friends from the USA travel to Cambridge to honour our fallen Canadian soldiers on Warriors Weekend.
