Poppy Campaign 2021

We Need You!

Further to the message from the Poppy Chair last month. I am reaching out to you again to request your assistance with the 2021 Poppy Campaign. We are limited in what we can do because of covid protocols. This includes the elimination of hundreds of cadets that would normally participate in our poppy campaign. So we need you more than ever!

A Volunteer on the Poppy campaign need not be a Veteran or even a member of the Legion! Your family, friends and business associates can also participate.   Here are the jobs we are looking to fill:

1.        Business route drivers and helpers.

2.        School Route Drivers

3.        Money Sorters. 

If you, or someone you know, is willing to assist please contact me directly or sign in on the Poppy Volunteer Sheet currently located on the bar. 

Lawn Signs are available at the branch.
Remembrance Day Parade will be live streamed this year.
