Poppy Project reappears for Remembrance Day

IMG 0897

A look around many stores and buildings throughout the valley leading up to Remembrance Day stand beautifully coloured red and purple poppies.
This is thanks to a collaborative community project spearheaded by the Drumheller Geneology Club.
The 2022 Poppy Project was an overwhelming success, where more than 3,000 poppies were crocheted and knit by residents of Drumheller and surrounding areas. Committee members designed artful pieces with the poppies and they made their debut last year at the Western GM Art Galley at the BCF, as well as in local business and institutions throughout town
The red poppies signify the servicemen and women who fell in battle and the purple poppies are for the service animals.
At this time the committee is not looking for more poppies, but has designs to make it an ongoing project similar to the veteran’s banners in Drumheller.
