2014 Poppy Campiagn was a big success (Brock Fahrni)
Editor: On behalf of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 21 Langley, I would like to thank everyone who made this year’s Poppy Campaign such a wonderful success.
Remembrance Day was particularly difficult for all of us this year. The recent attacks on Canadian soldiers, here in our own country, were fresh in our minds and made many of us see things in a different light. Thousands of people came out to pay their respects during Langley’s Remembrance Day ceremonies and many people in the community showed an overwhelming spirit of giving during our annual Poppy Campaign.
These include a dog services program, transition house, and BCIT program, all of which help veterans adjust to civilian life. Donations will also be made to the Air, Sea, and Army Cadets, as well as to the George Derby and Brock Fahrni veterans facilities and the Langley Lodge.
