Lieutenant-Governor Vaughn Solomon Schofield was presented with the first poppy of the year by the Royal Canadian Legion on Tuesday at Government House.
“I was deeply honoured to receive the 1st poppy in SK from the @RoyalCdnLegion SK @Govt_House. Pls honour vets & support the #PoppyCampaign,” she wrote on Twitter.
She then presented the poppies to legion members and veterans.
Chad Wagner, Provincial Executive Director Royal Canadian Legion Saskatchewan Command, says money raised helps all of Canada’s veterans.
Poppies will be available to the public beginning Friday.
