WAVERLEY: The Poppy Campaign at the Waverley Legion has received a boost to it’s annual campaign this year.

With COVID19 limiting things and restricting where legions, like the Waverley Legion, can setup and sell poppies to raise money for the Poppy Campaign any support from the community is appreciated.

The Waverley Legion has had community volunteers–both from the legion and community itself–manning the table outside the Fall River Sobeys. Poppies have been available at other locations in the community.

On Nov. 10, the Poppy campaign received a financial boost tot heir campaign when the Fall River and area Lions Club contributed $500 to the Legion’s campaign.

A presentation was made under sunny skies at the cenotaph in front of the Legion, located on Rocky Lake Drive, by King Lion Kirk Stephen to Legion President Ken Mallet. Other Legion board members were on-hand at the presentation as well.
