Royal Canadian Legion doors are open across Chatham-Kent this week as part of Legion Week.

Zone A-3 Commander Irene Williams, who was part of a flag-raising at city hall in honour of Legion Week, said it is a time when the doors are open at all the branches in the municipality and everyone is welcome to see what being a member of a Legion is all about.

“People have the opportunity to sit with a veteran and talk to them, hear the history,” Williams said. “Each of the 10 Legion branches (in Chatham-Kent) has activities going on like cards or bingo.”

Williams said at one time, a person had to be in the Canadian Forces to join, but Legion membership is open to everyone.

“We are happy to welcome everyone,” she said.
