Poppy Tagging

Hello its that time of year where the cadets have to volunteer to help the legion sell poppies. Cadets are not asked to walk around and sell, they sit at a table at a location and simply represent the Canadian Legion and use their manners, while people donate money into the bucket. Cadets should not handle any money.
This is a mandatory activity that all cadets need to participate in to pass their star levels.

This year we have been asked to provide cadets for the crossiron mills mall 1000-1900, I have not got the complete details, however I will start making a list of volunteers. Please email me back with a time slot that works well for you. Ideally I would like one new cadet and one older cadet together so they can show them what we have done in the past and have a responsible cadet there to answer questions. First come first serve time slots.

Please do NOT reply all, just directly back to me.

Thanks

Time is as follows (I need 1 senior cadet, 2 junior cadets(Green-Silver) and 1 parent for each time slot)

NOV 1 or NOV 8 (2 dates to choose from)

0945-1100 1 senior, 2 Juniors, 1 parent
1045-1300
1245-1500
1445-1700
1645-1900

I will send the completed list out on Wednesday.

If you cant make any of these times the legion is also looking for volunteers on any day 1 Nov-10 Nov, please let me know.

Thanks for your support

A Forward by Her Majesty The Queen

The Queen’s Young Leaders Program will recognize and support
thousands of young people, including around 240 Award winners,
who are striving to reach their potential and transform their own lives,
and the lives of those around them.
More than sixty per cent of the population across the Commonwealth
is now under the age of thirty, so it has never been more important to
give young people the tools they need to become active citizens and
overcome the difficulties they may face.
This program provides opportunities for young leaders to develop
new skills and international networks, as well as celebrating those who
already demonstrate excellent leadership qualities.
It is through our young people that the Commonwealth will continue
to prosper in the coming years and it is hoped that The Queen’s Young
Leaders will play a significant role in shaping its future.
