Tobermory Legion Branch 290 News: Introducing MemberPerks

Submitted by Elaine Sinha

As part of your legion membership, there is now a member discount program. MemberPerks gives Legion members the opportunity to access money saving offers at stores, restaurants and services across Canada. To join, go to You will need to create an account to join and will need your Legion card to access information to join. Fill in the blanks, you will be sent an activation code to your email, complete the activation and that is it; start saving. 

There is an app that you can download to your phone called Venngo but it doesn’t get very good reviews. I haven’t tried it but if anyone out there has if you see me around town let me know what your experience is like. In any event, it is always good to save some money.

Membership Renewal

Thanks to everyone who took advantage of the early bird renewal. We manage to have a renewal rate of 97% which is amazing. If you haven’t renewed and still wish to you can but the price is now $50.00 and this can be done with cash or better yet e-transfer to: . If you are paying by cash you will need to contact Rick Lane. 

If you no longer wish to be a Legion member (happens) and Rick has contacted you, please just let him know. An enormous thank you to Rick Lane for all of the work that he puts into membership renewal and for being a good sport about all of the ribbing that he takes in this column. It is all in good fun and trust me, Rick gives it as good as he gets it!

As this crazy year winds down the Executive would like to thank everyone for their support and patience in waiting for activities to resume. None of us knows what 2021 will bring but whatever it is we are all hoping to be able to talk about it over a beer or two. 

As always, hoping that everyone remains, safe, healthy and sane. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
