POPPY CAMPAIGN 2019

  

    

On behalf of the Colonel John McCrae Memorial Branch 234 of the Royal Canadian Legion we thank the men and women of today and yesterday who have served and are serving our country in the name of peace and for our freedom.


We thank the Guelph community for their participation in the 2019 Poppy Campaign - and the businesses, schools and organizations who had poppy collection boxes in their establishments


We thank the parents and schools who encouraged the children to be involved including the submission of entries to the Legion's Literary and Poster Remembrance contest. 


Thank you also to all those who laid wreaths at the cenotaphs, cemeteries and monuments in honour and remembrance of those who have served.  


To all our volunteers who distributed Poppy Boxes throughout the City, collected them again then helped to count and deposit donations - we thank you for your dedication and service. 


The Guelph Poppy Trust Fund is used to assist Veterans and their dependents who are in need.  


In the Tradition of Remembrance.
