We have closed our accounts and forwarded the money, totaling $8,810, to the Nova Scotia/Nunavut Command in Dartmouth. Hopefully, they will spend it wisely to a good Poppy Fund. It’s out of our hands now.
The Ladies Auxiliary, as I have said before, were fantastic. They should not feel like they did something wrong. They were there to help serve the vets and the public, and that’s what we all did.
My heart goes out to them all, especially the Silver Cross Mothers. It’s been an honor to work with such a wonderful bunch of ladies and even husbands that help. They wore their aprons proudly.
Ladies, you have gone far beyond what volunteering is all about. We will stick together.
Kathy Thompson, past president, Branch 20 Auxiliary
