Letter to the editor 3, Nov. 26, 2015
I would like to thank, on behalf of the Hudson Legion Poppy Committee, all the volunteers who gave their time to help our Poppy Drive this year. Starting with Gerry Foliot and Moe la Foley, who organized and set up the Campaign at the big Box Stores, volunteers which included the local Guides and Scouts. The drivers who donated a lot of time and gas including Barry Rowland, Mike Devine, Gorgie Jesty, Mac Laird, Dennis Copley, Mike Lauzon, John Spriggs, Michel Brabant (hope I forgot no one), and all the people who gave their time to sit at the local IGA.
There is one more person without whose help I could not have managed. She is the one who kept me on track, ordered all the wreaths and poppies, and then spent hours being involved with, and organizing the counting of all monies, and seeing that it gets to the Bank, and that is Donna Atwood.
Our total this year, with one or two boxes still to count, is approx. $28,000, so thank you one and all, and on to 2016.
