The event is also available on the legion’s Facebook page.

• Show your support for veterans and those in active service by putting poppies in your front windows in the days leading up to Remembrance Day. Post pictures of your poppies on Twitter and Instagram by tagging #WhiteRockRemembers.

• Don’t forget you can still work out from the comfort and safety of your own home.

Led by our certified instructors, White Rock Recreation and Culture has four new fitness videos, detailing routines that require minimal equipment and are 30 minutes long – including stretch and strength, standing stability 60+, chair yoga and zumba gold.
