The good news is that Comrade St
éphane will continue as the Zone G5 Poppy Chair of which he has done and will continue to do well and effectively. Thank you Stephane! His last meeting will be March 28,2021

Since this development, we are actively looking to find a new Deputy Zone Commander to replace St
éphane. If you are interested or know someone who is interested, please send an email with a bio so I know who the person is and their experience in the Royal Canadian Legion.

Please join me and wishing St
éphane (and Angèle) all the best and continued success.
