THOMPSON-OKANAGAN - This year’s poppy campaign is expected to be underway this Friday, Oct. 30.
Poppies will be available at all Legion offices and members will have them available at locations throughout the city.
Funds from the poppies contribute to veterans, their families and others in need of assistance in the community. The long-standing tradition dates back to the First World War and memorializes soldiers who never returned home.
Beginning Friday poppies should be available at the following Royal Canadian Legion branches where you can also make a donation:
425 Lansdowne St.
5101 25 Ave.
1380 Bertram St.
502 Martin St.
