Dave Strickland of the Conception Bay South Legion Branch 50 sits proudly at the poppy donation stand at the NLC Liquor Store at Sobey’s in Long Pond, Conception Bay South. Strickland has been with the Legion for 47 years, after his stint with the military beginning at the age of 17. After spending time in the Church Lads Brigade, he went on to enlist in the Air Cadets, the militia, the Canadian Armed Forces, and the Canadian Army Reserve. “I enjoyed every minute of it,” Strickland said. This is the first year donations can be made via tap. All money donated goes to veterans in need. Chad Feehan photo
