Another way we can support our veterans is by wearing a poppy! Many individuals can be found at malls, grocery stores and schools offering the pin-on poppies and accept cash donations that benefit our veterans. For more information about this please visit http://www.legion.ca/remembrance/the-poppy
Get the kids involved! A letter or postcard with a few kind words and thanks from our young canadians would mean so much to our Armed Forces. Visit the Postcards for Peace with the Government of Canada at: http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/remembrance/get-involved/postcard-for-peace
From our team at Budget Blinds Serving South East Saskatchewan we hope you have a wonderful weekend and enjoy your Remembrance Day activities. Thank you to our Armed Forces for their service.
