LETTER: A thank you from the local Legion

Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 32 thanks the community

To the Editor:

Branch 32 of the Royal Canadian Legion in Agassiz would like to sincerely thank the people and businesses of Harrison Hot Springs and Agassiz for their generous support of our annual Poppy Campaign.

We would like to thank the businesses who allowed us to set up a table close to their doors for our taggers to sell poppies and keep a safe distance from other people. A big thank you to the volunteers who stood outside, rain or shine, to man those tables.

We would also like to thank the amazing Legion Volunteers who put up and took down tables and tents every day; those who distributed poppy boxes and collected them on the last day; those who counted money every day and many others who helped with the campaign.
