The  Summerland Legion is accepting Christmas Cards for our troops serving in Afghanistan.

The cards will be forwarded in bulk to the Armed Services in Belleville, Ont. for delivery to Kabul, Afghanistan.

On the envelope of the individual card please put:  TO ANY CANADIAN SOLDIER.

Personal notes are encouraged in the card, such as, “Thank you for everything you are doing for Canada and the people there.”

Please remember to sign your name.

Handmade cards from children are especially appreciated.

Do not put stamps on your cards, as the Legion will be sending all the cards on to Belleville in one package.

Please drop your cards off at the Summerland Legion on Rosedale Avenue by Dec. 6.
