Lest we forget


Volunteers with the Royal Canadian Legion’s annual Poppy Campaign are out in full force across Chatham-Kent in honour of Canada’s veterans.

Helping out recently at the Real Canadian Superstore in Chatham are Julia Morrison, Lorraine Irwin, Len Maynard and Vicki Muharrem.

Funds raised by the nation-wide campaign are used to support veterans, including Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP, as well as their families who are in need.

Local C-K legions are currently preparing for Remembrance Day celebrations on Nov. 11. In Chatham, at Legion Branch 642, parade participants are asked to form up at the William Street location at 10:30 a.m., before marching to the King Street cenotaph for a commemorative ceremony at 10:45 a.m.
