Dear Editor:

The Columbia Valley Unit of the Canadian Cancer Society is once again amazed by the response we have received this year during our live daffodil event. This truly is a community of friends who keep giving and we are very happy to be able to bring a touch of spring into all the businesses and homes here.

It was lovely to see the town ablaze with golden daffodils, fresh from Vancouver Island. This event marks the beginning of the Daffodil Campaign and Daffodil Pins are available to pick up at various locations throughout the community. Wear the pin throughout the month of April and we hope everyone will have one on their lapel for National Daffodil Day, April 27th. These little flowers are a symbol of hope for all those people who are fighting cancer and the bulk of the money raised will be dedicated to cancer research.

So, a very big thank you to all the wonderful friends who donated generously. We could not do this without all of you from Brisco to Canal Flats.

Eileen Fiell

Daffodil Coordinator, Columbia Valley Unit
