Poppies are for remembering

First the Boomerang Bag. Then the Boomerang coffee mug. And now this. Fran Dickinson, of Frances Felt, leader of the no-more-waste army (Pemberton division), (feel free to sign up and join the mission), has made poppy pins that she will gift to those at the Circle Craft Christmas market, which happens to be taking place this Sunday, on Remembrance Day.

Last year, the Pemberton Legion raised $13,589.90 from their Poppy campaign, which provide $1500 for bursaries and $5355.56 for Veterans Grants. You can contribute to the 2018 campaign by purchasing a poppy or a wreath, but you can also contribute without buying a wreath, and simply make a donation. Contact legionbranch201@shaw.ca or by calling 604 698 9024 for more information.
