Letter: NOTL Legion helps Sparks remember

Dear editor:

On Nov. 8, the Niagara-on-the-Lake Sparks, the five- and six-year-old Girl Guides, held their Remembrance Day meeting.

Jackie Dickieson, veterans service officer from the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 124 attended.

She spoke to the Sparks about the role of the Legion in Niagara-on-the-Lake and distributed gift bags from the Poppy Committee. The bags contained red mittens with a Canadian flag on them, a maple leaf flag scarf and two Canadian Flags.

The girls followed Jackie as she led them through a Remembrance Day activity book also provided by the Poppy Committee.

Sparks extend their thanks to Elizabeth Richards, the Legion office secretary, Lori Beak, recording secretary, and Barb Cole, a Legion volunteer, for the meaningful items.

The Sparks also decorated popsicle-stick crosses with the words “We Remember.” To end the meeting, the Sparks walked to the cenotaph, placed their crosses and sang O Canada. Such proud, young and free Canadians.
