A cer­e­mo­nial flag rais­ing was hosted on Mon­day to kick off Vet­er­ans Week in Swift Cur­rent. Mayor Jer­rod Schafer was as­sisted by mem­bers of the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion Branch #56 in rais­ing a spe­cial re­mem­brance poppy flag. The Poppy Cam­paign is cur­rently un­der­way across Swift Cur­rent, with manned lo­ca­tions at the Liquor Store, Wal-Mart and Pi­o­neer Co-op, along with do­na­tion boxes at busi­nesses through­out the city. Pro­ceeds from this year’s Poppy Cam­paign will be uti­lized to pur­chase two Broda Chairs for the Swift Cur­rent Care Cen­tre. Re­mem­brance Day cer­e­monies in Swift Cur­rent will again fea­ture a 9 a.m. ser­vice at the Ceno­taph fol­lowed by a 10:45 a.m. ser­vice at SCCHS, and a 2 p.m. lun­cheon at the Le­gion.
