Daffodils are ‘blooming’ in April

The Canadian Cancer Society Daffodil Campaign brings the spring flower, the symbol of renewed life, to its annual awareness and fundraising.

The daffodil pin will be back, along with the cut flowers.

“The pins were a pilot project last year and people liked them. We hope that people will wear them proudly in remembrance of anyone they know who has had cancer or whose lives have been touched by cancer,” said Wendy Stewart, president of the Vernon Unit, Canadian Cancer Society.

“The pins will be at local businesses and the Canadian Cancer Society office at The People Place by donation. They’ll be easy to find.”

Cut flowers will be sold in quantity to businesses and other organizations at the end of March, also by donation. April 27 is Daffodil Day.

The flowers should be pre-ordered by the end of March for delivery in early April.

For more information and to order daffodils or offer to have the pins available contact the Canadian Cancer Society office, at 250-542-0770 or vernon@bc.cancer.ca.
