The photo above and caption below were published in the Powell River News on November 6, 1969.
POPPY DAY: November 7 is Poppy Day, which has become an integral part of Remembrance Day (November 11), when Canadians remember fallen comrades, friends and relatives of two world wars, the Korean War, and for the few who still remember, the Boer War.
Legionnaires and their auxiliary will be selling poppies in Powell River and proceeds will be directed toward alleviating social ills within the community and as an aid to veterans and their families who are in need.
This display at Alexander House shows some of the wreaths Legionnaires have to offer.
Branch 164 Royal Canadian Legion members in this photo are [from left] Mrs. Trudy Evans, president, ladies auxiliary; W. (Scotty) Matthe CD; Mrs E. McNolty; and Mrs. J. Skorey.
