Poppy campaign supports the Legion

Author thanks everyone who had a part in making this year's poppy campaign so successful.

Dear Editor

I would like to take this time to thank all the people that gave up their free time to help with the Poppy sales. Ian and  Marj distributed the Poppies and Wreaths in Ashcroft and Ian helped get the trays and wreaths ready, all the people that sat at the tables in the post office and safety mart, the Sea Cadets in Credit Union. All this made our Poppy champagne a very good success. I would also like to thank the Sea Cadets for putting up and taking down the tables and chairs at the cenotaph and Shawn for printing the programs and giving any help we needed. The Ashcroft Firefighters for the fire truck and the R.C.M.P. for their security.

Thanks again for a job well done.

Glen Joss
