Legion grateful for community support

Legion Branch #99 Sicamous thanks all those who made the 2011 Poppy Campaign and Remembrance Day services a success.

Royal Canadian Legion Branch #99 Sicamous takes this opportunity to thank all those who helped make the 2011 Poppy Campaign and Remembrance Day services such a great success.

A special and heartfelt thank you goes to Georgie Miller for organizing, and all the ladies who contributed food for the potluck at the branch, and to the Malakwa Community Association for the reception in Malakwa. Thanks also for the wonderful performance by volunteer trumpeter, Spencer Dean, to the Army and Air Cadets, the Guides and the Sicamous Eagles Junior hockey team for their assistance in placing the wreaths

Once again, thanks to the community’s generosity the poppy campaign was a success. This year, individuals and local business were given the option of donating to the poppy fund in lieu of purchasing a wreath. This approach was well-received, especially by the business community who, by a large majority, chose to donate; many exceeded what would have been the cost of a wreath. As a result of their generosity, the poppy fund is well positioned to support the veterans in the community, and indeed we will be looking at all programs and groups whose work includes veterans, with the intent of assisting where possible.

On behalf of the executive and members of branch #99, thank you to the communities of Sicamous and Malakwa for your support.

Lest we forget.

Cyril Gosse,

President, Branch #99
