Remembrance Day was appreciated

The executive of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 22 sincerely thanks all businesses and our community for their support to the poppy drive.

Dear Editor:

With regard to the Nov. 11 Summerland Remembrance Day service and parade, the executive of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 22 sincerely thanks all  businesses and our community for their support to the poppy drive.

These funds help veterans and their families and special programs for military personnel.

The turnout of people attending was exceptional.

We would like to thank the Penticton Flying Club for their fly-by tribute. It meant a great deal to a lot of people.

Special thanks go to our chair Donna Rutherford and sergeant at arms Mike Brazeau for all his help and planning and to Ken Bazley along with his volunteers who put on a wonderful meal.

Barry Newcombe, president

Summerland Legion
