Want daffodils? Cancer Society volunteers will have them next week

To some, the daffodil is just a flower.  To many Canadians across the country it is a symbol of strength and courage, a symbol of life.  It says we will not give up.  It says we will fight back. It says we will beat cancer.

This spring the Canadian Cancer Society is fighting back – we’ll be offering cut flowers, daffodil pins and going door to door.   On March 25-26, 2011 in Revelstoke fresh cut daffodils will be available for $5 for a bunch of 10 and pins available for a $1.00.  Coopers Foods, Southside Grocery and Pharmasave will be the main locations to help fight back!

Since Lady Eaton first launched her Daffodil Teas in the 1950s, the Daffodil has been the symbol of hope in the fight against cancer.  Wednesday, April 27 is Daffodil Day and this year it is nationwide.  All across Canada, communities will be hosting Daffodil Day celebrations, and Revelstoke will be a part of this movement!  We are asking businesses to be a part of the “Wear Yellow” campaign to collect donations, wear yellow and help turn your business windows into a sea of yellow.  Please contact Neills Kristensen directly if your business will be participating in this great event.

We would like to thank you in advance for you commitment to this campaign and for supporting the Canadian Cancer Society.  Your participation makes a difference in the lives of people living with cancer and puts us closer to our goal of eradicating cancer.
