Our History

Founded in 1953, the Legion and its rich history serve as a reminder of those who gave their lives for what we have today. As you walk through the Legion, you'll see our museum of medals and plaques and our Legion shop, where you can make purchases to support local veterans. Kensington Legion also features annual Remembrance Day events and is a proud supporter of the Remembrance Day Poppy Fund.
