Mayor Merlin Blackwell receives a poppy from Clearwater-Vavenby Legion Branch 259 representative Wayne Wysoski on Oct. 26. Each year, poppies are given first to the governor-general of Canada, then to the provincial lieutenant-governors, to municipal leaders and finally to the general public. Poppies are now available by donation at a booth set up inside Buy-Low Foods. (Stephanie Hagenaars/Clearwater Times)
