Vets benefit from poppy campaign

Legion thanks community for poppy campaign support

On behalf of the Royal Canadian Legion, Hope Branch #228, I would like to express our sincere thanks to our community for the very generous support they gave our poppy campaign for 2016.

The money raised through this campaign is used to help the vets who reside in our catchment area.

Also, we continue to be overwhelmed by, but very appreciative of the support that we also receive annually, through your attendance of our ceremony that takes place at the cenotaph.

While there are many legions throughout the province that are struggling to stay open, we are fortunate that through the hard work of our members and the support of our community we continue to thrive.

Once again thank you one and all for your generosity.


Lynn Barker
