The annual Poppy Campaign is (a local initiative,) organized by Legion Branches across Canada. Branch 178 in Bowmanville has a very active poppy campaign. Mike Richard volunteers every year to oversee the branch’s Poppy Fund. The boxes, the trays, the money, the volunteers, and to a point, where they are placed. Administration – all the paperwork that need to be completed to be accountable and transparent, is his responsibility as well.
