While the cross-Canada annual Poppy Campaign does not officially begin until Friday, October 28, members of Hudson Legion Branch #115 were busy this past week preparing the collection boxes and trays that they will be presenting at various locations throughout the community raising funds for several worthwhile causes associated in some way with those who have served, or are serving, in the military and their dependents.
Said Hudson's Poppy Campaign president, Eric Connor, “With the monies collected last year, we were able to donate some $24,000 plus to such causes, including bursaries to students and local healthcare centres, and once again we are relying on the help and generosity of all concerned for another good showing in the collection boxes.”
