The Royal Canadian Legion Millet Branch #229 is beginning its poppy campaign soon, and the proceeds go to very worthy causes.

The campaign runs from Oct. 28 to Nov. 11 and includes poppy collection displays around town, plus wreath sales for Remembrance Day.

The funds raised through the campaign go to pay obligations to veterans and their families. Plus, every year the Millet Legion makes a donation to the Wetaskiwin Health Foundation and to the Millet veteran Firefighters Association. The Millet Legion also supports the Wetaskiwin Air Cadets 42 Sq. every year.

Poppy displays were to be placed in local businesses by Oct. 28.

Wreaths can be paid for and picked up Nov. 1 at the Millet Legion anytime from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. if businesses or individuals would like to display it in honour of those who served their countries in war. Those wreaths must be dropped off at the junior high school in Millet Nov. 10 at 5 p.m. in preparation for the Remembrance Day ceremony the next day.

Those interested in buying a wreath who haven’t in the past can simply drop by the Millet Legion Nov. 1, or call 780-352-2231.
