Poppy campaign kicks off in Fort St. John

Poppies will also be available by donation at many restaurants and businesses around town, including, of course, the Legion. The pin is meant to be worn on your left lapel, over your heart.

City Council has proclaimed October 25 to November 11, 2011 as the official poppy campaign in Fort St. John. 100 per cent of the money raised by the poppy fund will stay in the area, supporting veterans and youth activities. In 2012, approximately $28,000 was approved for donations in the North Peace.

Remembrance Day service will take place on November 11, 2011 at the Legion.
