Pense Branch Royal Canadian Legion #341

In 1951 the local branch of the Legion built the war memorial (Memorial Cairn) that stands in the CPR park on North Front Street, bearing the inscription – Erected by the Pense Branch of the Canadian Legion in lasting memory of their fallen comrades 1914-18 1939-45 "Lest We Forget". The Pense Legion cares for this monument. If at any time the Branch of the Legion ceases to exist, the Village of Pense will undertake that duty. This is in the minutes of the Village Council 1951.

On November 19th, 1947 the Pense Branch Royal Canadian Legion #341 was formed. Meetings were held in Pense until the following April when it was decided, as there were members from Drinkwater, Belle Plaine, Keystown and Stoney Beach, that meetings should also be held in some of these places. For some time after, these meetings were held in Belle Plaine and Stoney Beach as well as in Pense and for a number of years, Remembrance Day Services alternated between Pense and Belle Plaine.

The Pense Branch continues to hold a wonderful Remembrance Day service every year at the Town Hall.
