Here’s the latest NEWS from Branch 60 . . .

Poppy Campaign 
Remembrance Day plans

The 2023 Poppy Campaign runs from Friday, Oct. 27 until Saturday, Nov. 11.  Donations collected during the Poppy Campaign are held in Trust at the branch level to directly support Veterans and their families and to help ensure Canadians “never forget”.

Thank you to all of our amazing members, volunteers and Cadets who have been distributing Poppies since the campaign officially began on Oct. 27th.  While the Poppy is distributed freely to all who wish to wear one, the Legion gratefully accepts donations to the Poppy Fund.  The Poppy is Canada’s symbol of Remembrance.  Click HERE to learn more.
