The staff and students at Elkford Secondary School (ESS) got out their yellow shirts and put on daffodil pins to participate in the Canadian Cancer Society’s Daffodil Month.

“I am overwhelmed with the number of staff and students who took part in this event,” said Stephanie Hrisook, Daffodil Month campaign coordinator for Elkford and teacher at ESS.

The event took place at ESS last week.

Daffodil Month in Elkford started with the selling of daffodils around town. In Elkford 250 bunches of daffodils were purchased.

Daffodil pin boxes have also been placed at a number of locations around Elkford. So far over $1,300 has been raised for the Canadian Cancer Society.
