The need for veteran financial support is high and your poppy money goes towards that need.

This from officials with the Royal Canadian Legion, who are once again looking for support from residents across Muskoka.

Officials say when you buy a poppy your money goes towards programs like Leave the Streets Behind, Operational Stress Injury Special Section and the upcoming Invictus Games 2017 in Toronto.

According to details, over $17 million was spent on veteran aid in 2015 from the previous November Poppy Campaign.

Poppies are available now at retailers across Muskoka.

This year Remembrance Day ceremonies will be held across Muskoka including in Huntsville, Bracebridge and Gravenhurst.
