Just three short weeks ago I published that our total had reached 50,000. And now this week we have clicked over the 60,000 mark. Do you get the feeling that something very special is building here and it is going to be REALLY BIG!!!!
Built with so much respect and gratitude … it’s kinda to me like paying it forward on so many levels so how could it be anything else.
I know your hearts will swell with pride when you see the images of our services personnel marching through a field of our poppies … knowing that you have contributed. It makes my heart swell. Now I am just getting all gushy here, but it’s hard not to!!!
I say it time and time again that you guys are AMAZING! There are poppies coming from everywhere and I love it that you can all share the vision that Marg and I have for this wonderful community project.
OK enough of that. I thought I would share some of the lovely images that were posted on the facebook group and sent separately to me in and around Remembrance Day. There are some very creative people in our poppy community and some incredible sentiment that has just been looking for a little bit of inspiration. Congratulations to all of you for all your wonderful displays. Enjoy.
These photos are amazing – so much hard work and spirit from so many people! I’m in the process of crocheting some at the moment. Hopefully I can get them sent in soon.
We are so thrilled with the response.
Hope to see your poppies soon.

Hi 5000 poppies, I am the Secretary / Memorabilia Officer (Appt) of Coolum-Peregian RSL Sub Branch Inc. on the Sunshine Coast Queensland. I have a shopping bag full of valuable poppies crocheted by one of our older vet. members who wishes to remain anonymous…. I will say that this lady is a real treasure … Would you be able to send me a postal address to mail you her poppies to add to the growing collection please? Thanks, and keep up the great work, everything looks fantastic already after all the work that you have done …. Loving the fact that we are receiving photos via email. I will proudly show some of them off at our next General Meeting in January 2015. Thanks for your assistance. Kind regards, Ros Strongman Secretary /Memorabilia Officer (Appt) Coolum-Peregian RSL Sub Branch Inc.
