Creston legion members appreciate support around Remembrance Day

Web Lead

To the Editor:

With this year’s Remembrance Week having passed, Branch 29 of the Royal Canadian Legion wishes to thank the residents of the Creston Valley and the East Shore for their support and attendance at our cenotaph services on Nov. 11. We also appreciate your very generous contributions to our poppy campaign.

The success of these annual events requires many hardworking volunteers, the continuing support of our business, service organizations, churches and you, the public, who contribute so generously to honour our veterans on their special day.

This year, our poppy campaign and cenotaph service were very successful. We are indeed fortunate to have our local flying club honour the event with their “lost man” formation. We thank everyone who attended the service to pay their respects to our veterans, those whose names are on our honour roll, those who served and those personnel still serving their country. Your respect and remembrance are much appreciated.

We hoe to see you in the coming year at other legion events and activities. You don’t have to have a military connection to become a legion member. Membership is a good opportunity to become involved in your community.
