2017 Poppy Campaign
On behalf of the Royal Canadian Legion Varnavair Branch 153, we would like to thank the local businesses who responded to our mail appeal, the many establishments that allowed us to put Poppy boxes in their premises, and of course to the citizens of Tillsonburg and area that generously donated to our 2017 Poppy Campaign.
The response this year was outstanding as our donations topped $21,000.
This will allow the Legion to assist local veterans, their families, as well as veterans at Parkwood Institute. These funds also support bursaries to Glendale High School students and the Tillsonburg Meals on Wheels program.
The many people that attended the cenotaph services, and those that participated in the service, were greatly appreciated by the veterans.
Once again, on behalf of the Tillsonburg Legion, our heartfelt thank you to our great community of Tillsonburg for their response.
Yours in Remembrance,
Don Burton, Poppy Chairman
