Legion Poppy Campaign – Update

The Legion informed us last evening that there is a change to the schedule for Sunday.  For tomorrow the 29th and Sunday November 5th, we will only be completing one shift for poppies.  The updated shift time is 12:00 to 5:00 pm.

I realize that this is late notice, but if any cadets that had signed up for the morning, are able to switch to the afternoon, it would be greatly appreciated.  You can arrive at the mall for the updated time, without notifying us.

If the afternoon shift could please adjust their timings with a start time of noon vs. 1pm

Thanks for your patience Major MacDonald
