Duck Lake Legion members delivering poppies as far south as Warman this year

Omer Ranger of the Duck Lake Branch, The Royal Canadian Legion, reminds Valley area residents that the annual Poppy Campaign starts tomorrow, Friday, and to wear a poppy to remind us of the veterans and military personal who have served, and are currently serving Canada. The symbol of the poppy has even greater importance this year as two serving members of the Canadian Armed Forces were murdered last week, one deliberately run down by a person driving a motor vehicle and second, shot dead, while he was on ceremonial guard duty at the Tomb of the Unknown Solider in Ottawa.
