The first poppy was presented to Mayor Wayne Rowe today (Oct. 30) at the Legion signalling the start of the 2014 Poppy Campaign. This was presented by President Roy Bentley and Poppy Chairman Larry Boyd. Poppies will be on sale to the public from October 31st. Please watch for the volunteers in many areas of Gibsons and along the Sunshine Coast.
Last year over 18 million Canadians wore Poppies with pride to honour our fallen Canadian Veterans.
Proceeds of this Canadian Legion run campaign each year go directly to support Canada’s Veterans and their families, including serving military personnel and RCMP.
