Rockets help Legion

To the editor:

The Kelowna Rockets played a home game last November at Prospera Place during which the team celebrated Remembrance Day. 

The Legion was proud to provide a colour party for this occasion. The team wore special military style camouflage sweaters.

After the game, these sweaters were auctioned off and the proceeds generously donated to The Royal Canadian Legion Poppy Fund for branch 26. The Legion was pleased to accept a cheque for $3,000. 

Thanks to the Rockets for their generous assistance to the Poppy Fund which is used to assist our veterans, their wives or widows and dependents as well as for charitable purposes in our community.
