Poppies are available at many local businesses including grocery stores, liquor stores and other establishments in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. Digital poppies are also available here and donations to the Legion can be made here.
The poppy is worn each year during the Remembrance period to honour Canada’s fallen. The poppy was officially adopted as the Flower of Remembrance on July 5, 1921 and continues to be worn every year. Thanks to millions of Canadians each November who wear a poppy, the memories of those who fell in battle remain strong.
