Remembrance Day thank you

A reader writes to thank all those who helped make this year's Remembrance Day a success.

Dear Editor,

I would like to thank all the businesses and people who bought wreaths this year, and everyone for supporting the Veterans by buying poppies.

We had a great turnout at Remembrance Day again this year, at the cenotaph and at the Legion. Rose supplied the music and people had fun.

I would like to thank all the volunteers who took shifts at the post office and Safety Mart. We could not do this without you.

A special thanks to Ian and Marg for looking after Ashcroft for me. Thanks also go to the R.C.M.P., the Ashcroft fire department, the Colour Party, Shawn for printing the programs, Andy Anderson for the flyover, piper Colin Norris, and the Cadets for laying the wreaths and selling poppies at the Credit Union.

I am sorry, but we missed two names during the laying of the wreaths: Ines Lopez for Mike McAre, and Silva Grow Partners.

Thanks again for all your support.

Glen Joss
