Creston legion appreciates support at Remembrance Day

Web Lead

To the Editor:

With Nov. 11 having passed, Branch No. 29 of the Royal Canadian Legion would like to thank the people of the Creston Valley and East Shore for their attendance and support of our Remembrance Day ceremonies, as well as their generous contribution to our poppy campaign.

To make a success of these events requires countless hard-working volunteers, the support of our businesses, service organizations, churches and you, the public, who give so generously to honour our veterans on their special day.

This year, we had a successful poppy campaign and cenotaph service. The weather was beautiful, showcasing the fly-past. We thank everyone who attended the service to pay their respects to our veterans, those who made the supreme sacrifice and those personnel still serving our country. Your remembrance is much appreciated.

We hope to see you in the coming year at other activities were are conducting, as well as the 2013 Remembrance Day ceremonies and poppy campaigns.

Ian Currie
