On behalf of the Ladner Legion, I would like to take this opportunity to express our deepest appreciation to each and every one of our volunteers for their valued time and support during our recent Poppy Campaign.

I would also like to extend appreciation to the many organizations that in total raised almost 30 per cent of our funds. They were three Royal Canadian Air Cadet squadrons (819, 828 and 1867), Ladner Girl Guides and Ladner Scouts.                                                                                        

Lastly, a special thank you to the 221 [North Delta and Ladner] merchants and schools that support the campaign by allowing donation boxes to be left/distributed at their places of operations.

Given this tremendous support, we were able to raise approximately $50,000 that will again go to assisting our veterans and their respective families in addition to several others within our community.
