The Ongoing Work Of Poppies & Millet Maps 44 Veterans

Pipestone Flyer

During the weeks prior to November 11, the day we set aside to honour and remember, we see hundreds of poppies everywhere. For any size of a donation, you can purchase a poppy to wear and display your support. Money donated to the annual Poppy Remembrance Campaign is placed in public trust funds. From there, the finances are distributed to improve life for people in all our communities.

These funds go to help provide assistance to needy service members and their families. For purchasing medical equipment for health facilities, paying for medical research, to help build affordable housing for the veterans and seniors, paying for bursaries for under-privileged students and providing help and support for seniors (ie. meals on wheels, drop in centres, etc.).

On Monday, November 10, 2014, committee of members of the Millet Museum and Archives, along with Millet Legion members, placed Canadian flags on the veterans’ memorials in the Millet & Catholic Cemeteries. The Millet Museum and Archives created the map and brochure of the 44 veterans for the Millet Royal Canadian Legion #229.
