Memorial Banners for the 2020 Poppy Campaign time period are now available to be ordered. Please share this information with others who may want the opportunity to sponsor a Banner.
In October 2019, the Okotoks Legion, in conjunction with the Town of Okotoks and support from our Highwood MLA RJ Sigurdson and local businesses, has launched a Memorial Banner Remembrance Project. It serves to honour local Veterans who served honourably during WW1, WW2, Korean and more recent conflicts as well as Veterans who might not be from Okotoks, but whose Okotoks families would like to recognize their service to Canada and/or the Commonwealth.
The banners are installed on Okotoks light posts along Veterans Way (and possibly Milligan Drive if more space is required) during the October/November Remembrance period. They would be stored and re-installed each year for the Remembrance Period.
