Poppy boxes will be distributed all around the community

The poppy box fundraiser is the biggest project for Veterans.

At the most recent council meeting in Stony Plain, members of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch presented members of council and administration with a poppy.

Each year nearly 18 million poppies are distributed across the Country. Proceeds after deducting expenses such as the costs of poppies wreaths and other supplies are place in trust to be used for the support of Veterans.

Gordon Morrison is the president of Branch 256 Stony Plain and says the fund raiser is a crucial project for Veterans and RCMP members.

Poppy boxes will be set up all around the community and if anyone would like to wear their poppy they can leave a donation of any size in the box.
