The City of Fernie’s Mayor, Cindy Corrigan, was presented with the Canadian Cancer Society’s daffodil pin, as they prepared to launch their annual daffodil month.

“During daffodil month we’re asking Canadians to wear a daffodil pin to honour the people in our lives affected by cancer,” said Peter Goodhand, CEO and President of the Canadian Cancer Society.

Daffodil month is made up of a series of events that lead up to daffodil day.

“We are thankful for Canadians’ contributions to our cancer fight year-round, but on daffodil day we want to create a groundswell of hope and activities that will make a difference to both cancer patients and the fight against he disease,” said Goodhand.

The Cancer Society is encouraging Canadians to wear a daffodil pin throughout the month of April and especially on daffodil day, which is April 27.

“On daffodil day we’re inviting Canadians to reflect upon the thousands of people in this country who are facing cancer and to think about ways they can help them on their journey,” said Goodhand.

Daffodil pins are available throughout the Elk Valley.

In Fernie they can be purchased at Overwaitea, IGS, Extra Foods, the B.C. Liquor Store, Stop and Shop, Fernie Mountain Spirits, and Park Place Lodge.

In Sparwood pins are available at A & W, the Library and Town Hall, and Curves.

In Elkford the pins can be purchased at Fas Gas, the B.C. Liquor Store, Kootenay Market, Falkins Insurance, East Kootenay Community Credit Union and Elkfrod Secondary School.

Bunches of daffodils will also be sold on the weekend in downtown Elkford.
