Pickering’s Poppy Campaign has begun

Posted on Thursday October 30, 2014

Pickering’s Poppy Campaign kicked off today with the official flag raising presentation at City Hall.  The Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 606, Bay Ridges, presented the flag and pinned each dignitary with a poppy just prior to raising the flag.  The flag will be on display until November 12 at City Hall.  Poppies will be available at all City facilities and throughout stores in Pickering.

Remembrance Day services will be held on Sunday, November 9 and Tuesday, November 11 at 10:45 am at the City Hall Cenotaph, in the courtyard.

For additional information about Remembrance Day, please contact the Legion at 905.839.2990.
