VETERANS WEEK AND MEMORIAL DAY 2008

Veterans Week is being celebrated from November 5 through 12 this year. In connection with the week of events, the Belize Ex-Services League has launched its Poppy Appeal to raise much needed funds that contributes in many ways towards the League’s expenses, but more specific, towards the transportation of the sick veterans, the burial of veterans, purchase of medication and medical consultation when required and other expenditures related to the administration of the veterans’ welfare.

Also, in connection with the week of activities a Remembrance Service will be held at the Memorial Park in Belize City.

We at The Scout Association would like to support the Belize Ex-Services League as follows:

1: By helping with their Poppy Appeal and we are asking each Scout Unit in Belize to support this worthy cause by accepting and distributing 40 Poppies among their members, friends and family for a small contribution of $1.00 each. Members of the National Committee have already committed to this cause. Proceeds are to be turned in to Scout HQ by Friday November 9.

2: By attending the Remembrance Service, having members from your Cub Pack, Scout or Venture Scout Unit attend the Service at the Memorial Park in Belize City.

In past years a limited number of Scouts have attended the Remembrance Service but this year we would like to see this change so we urge you to make every effort to have good representation. Please wear your Poppy on your uniform this day.
