I continue to be stunned and thrilled by all the poppies we receive from so many women around the area! One woman arrived with 140 poppies in  plastic bag and wanted some more yarn so she could knit more when  she holidayed in New Zealand - how wonderful is that? There are also the many other dedicated and regular contributors of poppies with their 7-20each week. It really makes the total mount up quickly and we've now reached 8880 poppies with our 10,000 target very close indeed. The RSL sub-branch in Forster-Tuncurry is thrilled with all these and discussions are occurring as to how we will display all these poppies to their best advantage and ensure that they are a mark of respect and remembrance of all those who have been part of military forces - in war and peace.

Once again many thanks to all you wonderfully dedicated poppy makers.

By the way, we haven't heard from many about dedications put on their poppies. I want to list all these if possible.

Till next time, keep making the poppies!
