The Canadian Cancer Society daffodils are available Mar. 25–26 in Revelstoke.

Canadian Cancer Society daffodils available this week

To some, the daffodil is just a flower. To many Canadians across the country it is a symbol of strength and courage, a symbol of life. It says we will not give up.  It says we will fight back. It says we will beat cancer.

This spring the Canadian Cancer Society is fighting back – we’ll be offering cut flowers, daffodil pins and going door to door, says Revelstoke Daffodil Chair Neills Kristensen. On March 25-26, in Revelstoke fresh cut daffodils will be available for $5 for a bunch of 10 and pins available for a $1. They’ll be available at Cooper’s Foods, Southside Grocery and Pharmasave.

Since Lady Eaton first launched her Daffodil Teas in the 1950s, the Daffodil has been the symbol of hope in the fight against cancer.  Wednesday, April 27 is Daffodil Day and this year it is nationwide. Communities across Canada host Daffodil Day celebrations, and Revelstoke will be a part of this movement! We are asking businesses to be a part of the “Wear Yellow” campaign to collect donations, wear yellow and help turn your business windows into a sea of yellow.  Please contact Neills Kristensen at 250-200-0237 if your business will be participating.
