ANNUAL POPPY CAMPAIGN
Our annual Poppy Campaign was a success again this year. We wish to thank all those who attended our Remembrance Day Service as well as all businesses, community groups and individuals who purchased wreaths. The donations to the Poppy Campaign are used to provide assistance to Canadian Forces veterans and their dependents when needed and also to provide two bursaries to qualified students in Mount Uniacke.

A special note of thanks to Circle K Irving, Eddy’s Variety, and the Post Office for providing space for our members to sit during the day of the Poppy Blitz. Thanks to our bugler, Angela Riley, organist, choir, members of the clergy, Colour Party and our Sea Cadets and Officers for their role during the Remembrance Day Service. We would also like to thank Lieutenant Mike Mercer for being the Parade Commander and to members of the military as well as the Fire Department for being flag bearers. We would also like to thank Mr. & Mrs. Ritchie for the use of their garage to put our wreaths in on Remembrance Day. Thanks to our wreath sellers, our members who sat during the blitz, Rita Harroun and our cadets who sat at the Irving after the Blitz and to the volunteers who were in the kitchen to put out the food on Remembrance Day.
We would also like to thank the school for inviting members of the Legion to take part in their Remembrance Day Assembly. Grade six students also participated in the Annual Remembrance Day poster contest. Congratulations to all who participated. The winners were:

1st Prize – Marissa Hood
2nd Prize – Liam Fiander
3rd Prize – Lilian Lidberg
Honourable Mention – Paige Dash

THANK YOU MOUNT UNIACKE!
