RCL Poppy Flag Raising Ceremony – Oct. 24, 2021

To kick off the Royal Canadian Legion (RCL) Poppy Tag Days, there will be a Poppy Flag Raising Ceremony in front of Duncan City Hall, 200 Craig Street, on Sunday, October 24th, at Noon. Masks are highly recommended.

The Poppy Campaign provides Canadians with the opportunity to Remember and honour our fallen Comrades by providing a Poppy to be worn in order to pay tribute to their sacrifices, deeds and accomplishments. All funds raised go directly to Veterans and their families – to the Legion Foundation – to special programs for Veterans with special physical needs – PTSD care and research – Veteran Care Homes – and provides bursaries, and much more. Please support this national campaign and give for those who have given so much to us.

Please support the Legion by purchasing a poppy during Poppy Tag Days, October 24 – November 11, at local retailers throughout the Cowichan Valley, donating by e-transfer to wpoppyrcl@gmail.com, or purchasing a wreath to be placed at the cenotaph prior to the Remembrance Day ceremony by contacting: rcl53treasuremembershippoppy@gmail.com, or joining the Legion as a Member online at https://www.legion.ca/.
