Saturday, March 14th starting at 12 pm at Bala Branch 424
Muskoka is one of Canada’s most-celebrated places to live and visit. This St Patrick’s Day, at the Bala Legion, we want to honour all the small business people who make our Muskoka experience possible.

These are the members of our community who own and work at businesses that may not always be recognised as important. They clean, build, repair, and maintain our cottages and homes. We will be hosting a 12 hour drop in community extravaganza starting at 12 pm on Saturday, March 14th 2020..

There will be draws for meat, concert tickets, and Leafs tickets along with food and live music from our friends, The High Rollers, who are back by popular demand. Tickets are $25 per person and available through Eventbrite. Limited to 300 tickets.

Please remember Branch 424 is committed to the National Unity exchange program at Glen Orchard Public School. A portion of the proceeds of this event will go to supporting Glen Orchard students.

Join us in recognizing our community’s small business peoples and their families!     

Thank you for supporting Branch 424.

Keith Metcalfe memorial

Please join us for the Memorial Celebration for Keith Holland Metcalfe (July 5, 1923 – February 3, 2020), which will be held on Saturday, March 7th starting at 1pm at the Bala Community Hall, 1008 Maple St, Bala. Reception to follow at Br 424 Bala Legion, 1011 Maple St., Bala, Ontario.

Keith was a WW II Veteran, and a member of the 1st Canadian Paratroop Battalion. He passed away peacefully at Hospice Simcoe, Barrie, with his daughters by his side. Beloved husband to Jean (deceased) for 68 years, loving father of Janice (Tom Witty), Nancy (Bill Gregor) and Maureen (Andres Tamm). Proud grandfather of Andrea, Michael, Scott, Keith, Sabrina, Anneli and Krista. Great grandfather to Madison, Taya, Serena and Jenna. Predeceased by brother Neil, sister Lois Dowdell and parents Victor and Lucy (nee Cable).

For over 47 years, Keith worked for CN Telecommunications in Toronto and on many projects across Canada, including the CN tower. Keith was an active member of the Royal Canadian Legion Br 66 in Willowdale and Br 424 in Bala, during his retirement years, holding many service positions. As a lifetime member, Keith was the recipient of the Legion’s Meritorious and Palm Leaf service awards and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for service to his community in Muskoka Lakes. The family would like to thank the wonderful staff of Amica Little Lake Retirement Residence, Barrie and Dr. D. Boushy, for their excellent care and attention.

In lieu of flowers, Keith would have appreciated memorial donations to Hospice Simcoe or RVH Hospital Foundation, Barrie or to Branch 424 Bala, Royal Canadian Legion, Poppy Fund.

Bala Legion Presents Replay The Beatles

Relive the magic of The Beatles with the tribute band the Montreal Gazette calls “Superstar Tribute”!

“Superstar tribute band” –Montreal Gazette April 2017

REPLAY The Beatles Tribute is Canada’s most authentic, exciting and compelling Beatles tribute. Many tribute bands imitate The Beatles… REPLAY makes you feel you have seen The Beatles.

“REPLAY is as authentic a reproduction of a show by The Beatles as you will see anywhere.”

– Montreal Six Flags said:

“REPLAY is a great, hard working group who have obviously done their homework” 
– Gerald Potterton (Animator, Yellow Submarine)

Eventbrite - Bala Legion Presents Replay The Beatles

REPLAY was also the only tribute chosen to perform twice in a row at the Calgary Stampede main stage, and three times at the official “The Beatles in Montréal” exhibit at the Pointe-à-Callière museum in 2014 to commemorate The Beatles 50thanniversary.

In March 2012 they were honoured to be personally invited by the British Embassy to perform during British Week at the prestigious British Ball celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee to over 1800 fans in Guatemala City.

“REPLAY electrified the 2011 Canadian Tulip Festival. We’re estimating between 5 & 6 thousand that evening.”
– Canadian Tulip Festival

The show spans the entire Beatles career with over 30 of your favourite songs from the Cavern to Abbey Road. With their captivating vocals, spot-on music, and FAB look, this cast of 4 musicians truly captures the aura and brings The Beatles back to life on stage.

This concert is also proud to be partnered with the VETS Canada’s Guitars for Vets program, which is based on a simple concept: veterans and currently serving members of the Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP who suffer from PTSD or other service-related injuries or disabilities will be provided with a new or gently used guitar. They will also be connected with free online lessons and – when and where available – students will have the option of working with a guitar instructor for 10 weeks of free lessons. These instructor-led lessons may be one-on-one or in small group settings. Our goal with Guitars for Vets is to get as many guitars as possible in the hands of wounded veterans to help the healing process. Please take a moment to consider donating your old guitar to help a veteran in need.
