Clothing

The UELAC Promotions Committee's line of clothing and gifts is designed to provide you with huigh quality apparel, and let you display your Loyalist heritage. Working with Land's End Business Outfitters, the committee has created two eStores:

You have the choice of two logos for embroidery.

Background & General Information

In 2002, the UELAC realized that those of us who are Loyalists or are just interested in the Loyalist era would like more ways to tell others that we are interested in the Loyalist Heritage. At the same time, the UELAC was about ten years from its centennial celebration as an organization, in 2014. There have been and will be other significant dates as well, such as the 225th anniversary of the landing of the Loyalists in 2008/2009, Canada 150 in 2017, etc.

The UELAC Promotions Committee was formed and has undertaken to provide a variety of items to us to help us promote the Loyalist heritage and the Association. Profits realized from the sale of items will be used towards some suitable Memorial projects leading up to various celebrations.

Many of the items are apparel: hats, jackets, shorts, vests, ties, scarves etc. Other items are for food and beverage, notably the variety of drinking glasses and mugs. Then there is the luggage and valise. Finally , the remaining goods are for display purposes, like the commemorative plate, the crest, sticky pads, vase, licence plate frame and a couple of pins. Items which prove less popular are withdrawn and new items are being added all the time.

The primary objective of the Committee is to provide good quality promotional items which we as members, and friends, can be proud to wear, use or display. Any profit which is earned at the end of the year is used for new goods and to set aside to help fund the projects and events leading up to our centennial celebrations. When branches are involved in the sales process, they too earn a small sum which will be likewise put towards branch projects, oriented to preserving and promoting the Loyalist Heritage. As members belong to a Branch, the Branch name can be embroidered on most clothing items for small fee.
