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

Earlier this evening, the Stanford Canadian Club hosted their annual Canadian Thanksgiving Potluck at Bechtel. The potluck style event featured dishes, drinks, or snacks from their student members, as well as the traditional turkey, mashed potatoes, and pie.
Like last year, the 2018 event also featured poppies in advance of the Remembrance season.
See this reminder from the Canadian Club at Stanford University.
Just bumping this email for Canadian Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow night 7:30 @ Bechtel. I’ll also have poppy pins for Remembrance Day from the Canadian Legion, so please bring a toonie tomorrow if you’d like one!
Welcome to the listserv for those of you who are new! I hope you all had a restful summer and are settling into the new academic year. We’re excited for another fun year of events with the Stanford ~Canadian Club~.
Next week will be hosting the annual Canadian Thanksgiving Potluck! This will be Wednesday, Oct. 10th from 7:30-9pm at Bechtel. As it is potluck style, we’d love for you to bring your own dish, drinks, or snacks. We will have a buffet with turkey, mashed potatoes, pie & more while supplies last.
We’re excited to bring together communities in celebration of the harvest while also acknowledging the colonial roots of the holiday we celebrate today (see articles below for more info on the history of Canadian Thanksgiving). Feel free to bring your friends along and I look forward to seeing you all!
