Golden Cadets get set to sell poppies

The cadets will be walking from the Legion and going along 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th Street to sell poppies on Oct. 27.

The 3066 Lord Strathcona’s Horse (Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps) will be taking donations for poppies in Golden on Saturday, Oct. 27.

“The poppy event is important to the Cadets as it shows our support to the local Legion branch as well as veterans from Canada. The Legion donates part of the funds raised to the cadets as well,” said Captain Navneet Rondeau.

The cadets will be walking from the Legion and going along 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th Street.

Depending on time the cadets may also go to the Alexander Drive area.

Rondeau believes that poppies are important for many reasons.

“I feel poppies are important to wear this time of the year as the Remembrance Day is approaching, we should be thinking of the veterans who served for our country so we can live in peace,” she said.

“I also want the community to be aware that the freedom we have is because of the people who fought for us in the past and are still fighting for us now. We should appreciate this freedom.”
