In Canada, the poppy is a universal symbol of remembrance of those who served and gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. We wear a poppy leading up to Remembrance Day. Boxes have been distributed to dozens of local businesses and institutions leading up to November 11 ceremonies. The funds raised through the sale of poppies support veterans and their families making sure they are cared for with the respect they deserve. On Tuesday, November 3, Mayor Bryce Nimmo, centre received a poppy from Legion President Dave Watkin, while legionnaires Jim Fleming and Frank Fraser look on. The Drumheller Mail will have a full schedule of Remembrance Day ceremonies throughout the area in its next edition.
