Ontario Public Health is now recommending we close. Unfortunately this is an unfortunate situation that effects our Comrades, staff and patrons that frequent our branch. As of 18:00 hrs today, March 16th, we are closing. The plan is to resume normal operations on March 30th 2020. This will be subject to change. As this situation changes daily, we will update when information becomes available.
Sincerely Barry Kimber, President Branch #233

It is with great pride and pleasure to be able to announce that a very significant (to us) event took place today here in Orangeville. As you know, our Branch, (Br. 233) runs a Thursday Night Bingo. This Bingo is supported by a dedication group of people from the town and surrounding areas. The money raised goes into a trust fund which in turn is used to support various agencies. Today, that fund was able to donate $2000.00 to the Orangeville Food Bank.
Joining us in this presentation was Chief of Police Wayne Kalinski (legion member) and Deputy Chief of Police Leah Gilfoy. Besides serving and protecting our town, the Orangeville Police knows a thing or two about supporting various agencies within the area, such as collecting toys during the festive season, food items for those in need,and supporting many more events throughout the year. It was an honour to have them with us today.This is how it should be. Society supports those in need and we (the Legion) will continue to do our part.
Again, many thanks to all. As we say “Lest We Forget” “We Will Remember”.
For those who don't know, we run a Thursday Night Bingo here at Branch 233 Orangeville. Like our motto " The Little Legion with a Big Heart, our Bingo is little but the people who support us have big hearts and generous spirits. So, it was only fitting, that when the opportunity arose to present a very unique award, the Bingo venue was chosen.
The individual who was to be presented this award has over time consistently supported our branch every so quietly. As this award did not arrive in time for the “Honours and Awards” banquet, it was decided to do this presentation where our patrons, whose continued support enables us to assist various agencies in Orangeville, would also be a part of the ceremony honouring this person. Sharon Kimber was presented with the Royal Canadian Legion Friendship Award, which consisted of a medal and a certificate, signed by the Dominion President.
The Friendship Award exists to honour and recognize individuals who have rendered assistance, service or cooperation to the Legion beyond that which could normally be anticipated or expected. Sharon Kimber is truly a Friend of the Legion!
