Poppy Information

 

Date- Saturday Oct 26th, 2019

 

Time to arrive at Victorian Club- 0830- new TIME

Time done: Noon

 

 

Address: 1300 Victoria Avenue

 

Community Service: This is a day when our cadets assist the Royal Canadian Legion with the distribution of poppies around the city.  All Cadets are asked to take part in this very important civic event. Our Squadron does the morning shift only. Groups or pairs of cadets are positioned at various locations throughout the city (malls, box stores, etc) with a tray of poppies.  Remember to always be polite to everyone, accept donations for the poppies with a smile and stay with your partner (except for bathroom breaks).  You do not need to eat (you could have a water bottle with you). Basically, this means that you are doing a job, not “hanging around the mall”. Be responsible.

 

 

Travel- The cadets will travel to the Victorian Club by their parents then Volunteer parents (hopefully you) can take a load of cadets to malls and major stores in the city limits

 

Who is this event for: This is a day for cadets only to hand out poppies. We do not ask for donations and we do not SELL poppies.  Parent Volunteers are desperately needed to transport cadets to and from sites.

 

Lunch: We will provide lunch from the Victorian club, which is normally a hotdog/Pop/chips

 

What to wear (it can be cold in the outdoor locations so dress warm)- Wear your Complete Cadet uniform including parka

For Cadets without Uniforms, please wear dress pants ( no jeans), jacket ( fall coat, parka, warm bunny hug), close toe shoes (running shoes, dress shirt

 

What to bring– water, snacks, positive attitude, smile and manners (Thank the people that do donations)
