A special fundraiser for military members and their families is almost at its fundraising goal.
The “We Remember” Pin was designed to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Beaumont Hamel. Only 500 of the pins were made, which feature designs of the Forget-Me-Not made with gold donated by Anaconda Mining. All proceeds to to the Maple Leaf Fund at the Community Foundation of NL.
So far, $42,000 has been raised, with 85 to 90 per cent of the pins being sold. The campaign hopes to have all the pins sold and their fundraising completed by October 31st.
You can purchase the pins at the Golden Tulip on Water Street in St. John’s.
