Legion hosted Remembrance Day celebrations could use volunteer help

Remembrance Day ceremonies hosted by the Legion could benefit from volunteers

To the Editor:

November 11 is coming quickly. Starting October 28,  you will be able to pick up your poppy at a local business. Remember all the money collected from these donations goes to help veterans and their families in times of need. It also goes to help support a veterans child with education by way of a scholarship.

On November 11 there will be a parade from the legion to the cenotaph where Remembrance Day ceremonies will take place.

 

Wreaths will be laid and prayers will be  saidsaid. We hope you will attend this event.

Following all the formalities there will be a lunch in the legion hall.

 

Now we are asking for volunteers to assist with kitchen duties, serving tea, coffee, juice, etc. We need help with the setting up of tables and chairs on November 10, and the taking down of same after lunch.

If you have a new recipe for dessert that you wish to try you can make it and bring it that day, as desserts are also needed. We have volunteers to make chili and stew.

If you would like to help us out, please give the Legion a call at (250)499-5634.

Remember, you can pay your dues that day and still be an early bird or sign up to be a member.

There will be entertainment that day. So come and share in the pleasure and freedom our veterans have given us.

Yours in comradeship,

Beverly Remizove, Legion President
