Every November, we take time to honour the men and women who have served our country. As in years past, Council will help kick off the start of the Poppy Campaign with a flag-raising at City Hall. Local veterans and members of the Canadian Legion will raise the Poppy Flag and pin the first poppy on Mayor Lisa Helps to symbolize the official start of the annual fundraising campaign.
What: Raising of the Poppy Flag
When: Friday, October 26, 2018 at noon
Where: Flag Pole in front of City Hall, Pandora Avenue
The Poppy Campaign is staffed entirely by volunteers through the Canadian Legion. Funds are used to provide financial assistance to serving and former Canadian Armed Forces and their families who are in need. Poppies will be available by donation at City Hall.
