04 May 2015, Westmount, QC – In a ceremony during the RMR’s annual Church Parade and battalion review held yesterday, the comrades of the RMR Association (Branch 14) of the Royal Canadian Legion presented a cheque to the RMR Foundation, a charity that began in the early 1920’s to support the interests of the RMR, the militia, and veterans.

Accepting the cheque on behalf of the RMR Foundation was Lieutenant- Colonel Paul Langlais (Commanding Officer of the RMR), and Honorary Lieutenant-Colonel Colin Robinson, Vice-President of the RMR Foundation.

The donation is earmarked for the “RMR Soldiers Fund” and is used to to assist RMR serving members in need, as well as provide support to the Regiment as requested through the CO.  Bravo to the comrades of the RMR Association (Branch 14)  for continuing to make a difference for Canada’s veterans in our community!

About the RMR Association, a.k.a. “the Branch”:  They number well over 100 members and meet monthly in the RMR’s armoury from September – May, with a break over the summer.  The Branch’s main focus is supporting veterans & the RMR Family, and promoting Remembrance through the conduct of the annual Poppy Campaign.  In 2013, the Branch won a trophy for the best recruiting achievements in Quebec, and one of its members was recognized as the “Legionnaire of the Year” for Quebec.

The RMR Association also announced the launch of their Bursary Program at the end of 2013 which is open to all members of the RMR Association, as well as there is an ADDITIONAL program for students available through the Legion: Quebec Provincial Command of The Royal Canadian Legion administers an independent Bursary Program for eligible applicants.
