Award-winning author Linda Granfield, has been very involved in a school poppy program, Each One Remembered – On se souvient de chacun, for Vimy Ridge Day. On Friday, April 9, Canadians are invited to make poppies to pay tribute to all of those who served in the First World War. To participate in this program and for more information, please click on the links for English and French.
We applaud Linda Granfield for her heroic efforts on acknowledging our beloved veterans!
