[true-north] Remembrance Day Poppies

From the Stanford Canadian Club

Hi all,

The Royal Canadian Legion has given me a box of poppies to distribute to you all in honour of our fallen soldiers & veterans this November. I’ll be setting up at Tresidder tomorrow from 10:30am-2pm if you’d like to pick one up. All donations collected go towards our local branch’s Trust for veterans and their families. That said, poppies are given freely and are a great way to show your support & appreciation regardless of ability to give.

Feel free to email me if this time doesn’t work for you, happy to arrange another time! History of the poppy here: http://www.legion.ca/remembrance/the-poppy/history-of-the-poppy

Pick Up Your Poppy At Valley of the Moon at Madrone Estate Winery

Visit one of Sonoma’s oldest, and the only Canadian-owned winery in the valley.  True to our Canadian roots, pick up a poppy and leave a donation for the San Francisco Bay Area branch of the Royal Canadian Legion.  If you are in the valley on Saturday, 10 November around 11am, stop by Liberty Cemetery in Petaluma for their annual Remembrance Day ceremony.  Then come by the winery in the afternoon for a snack and a tasting.
