Poppies were distributed as a part of the Veteran’s Day celebration at the McKinleyville Senior Center in McKinleyville, CA this year. Here are some images from the lobby of the center on Veteran’s Day featuring some red poppy cookies, the front desk of the center, and Candra Day from the McKinleyville Senior Center.
If you don’t have your poppy yet, but sure to pick one up today or tomorrow at the Canadian Consulate in San Francisco.

From the Stanford Canadian Club…
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

Here he is hosting the Chief Trade Commissioner. Ailish Campbell, at a couple of weeks ago at an event during the Young Global Leaders, World Economic Forum.
