---Local school kids rally for Aylmer veterans
Lord Aylmer School held a "Loonies for the Legion"
campaign during Veterans' Week. There was a positive response from the school
community. Staff and families from the school raised $1,000 for the Aylmer
Legion with funds going to support area veterans.
Christian Corriveau accepted the donation on behalf of the Legion. He is a
veteran who has been active in educational workshops leading up to Remembrance
Day at the school over the past few years. His informative video was showcased
during Lord Aylmer School's virtual Remembrance Day ceremony last week.
approached the school principal about this fundraiser to help the Royal
Canadian Legion in Aylmer in light of the difficulties with in-person
collection of funds this year. Teachers planned activities leading up to
Veterans’ Week to ensure students gained a better understanding of Canada's
involvement in past wars and conflicts.
