Administrative history

A meeting was held on February 6, 1950 with the Sexsmith Legion Branch #60 to organize a Ladies Auxilary to the Legion. Eleven ladies were present. Jack Thorpe chaired the meeting and Mrs. Elizabeth Jackson was elected president, Mrs. Gertha Cameron, first vice-president, Mrs. Melanie Brown, second vice-president, Mrs. Marion Brown, secretary, Mrs. Irene Thorpe, treasurer, and Mrs. June Peterson, Escort. There were seventeen charter members and meetings were held once a month. Activities over the seventeen years of the group's life included raffles, whist drives, bingos, bake sales and banquets, donations to the Polio fund and to the Edmonton Home for Ex-Servicemen's Children, work bees to scrub and polish the Memorial Center or to pack parcels for servicemen overseas, and treating themselves to a Chinese supper at the Nu Palace café. Lots of good companionship accompanied plenty of hard work.
