Upcoming events for 2019 in Waterloo Region and Wellington County -
Daffodil Pin Sales - April 4 - 6, 2019
To some the daffodil is just a flower. To us it’s a symbol of hope. It says we will not give up. It says we will fight back against cancer and win. The Canadian Cancer Society has more impact, against more cancers, in more communities than any other cancer charity in Canada, yet there is still more we need to do.
Join us to sell daffodil pins in the community at local grocery stores and LCBO stores.
