To the editor,
For 29 years members of Beta Sigma Phi have sponsored the Daffodil Days Campaign for the Canadian Cancer Society, selling daffodils in the towns of New Glasgow, Stellarton, Westville, Trenton and surrounding area, raising a total of $310,411, all of which was given to the Cancer Society.

This year the Nova Scotia Division of the Canadian Cancer Society will be looking after this project. The members of Beta Sigma Phi wish to thank the local businesses and general public for their outstanding support of this campaign, and say that it was always a great success, thanks to you. They hope you will continue to support this very worthwhile project. “Together we have made a difference!”

Don’t miss the 2014 Daffodil Campaign!  A representative from the Canadian Cancer Society will be contacting your business asking for your support of the campaign. April is Daffodil Month and the campaign will begin with pre-sale deliveries on April 9, retail sales on April 10 and 11 at the following locations:  Walmart, Aberdeen Sobeys and the Aberdeen Hospital. The daffodils are $8 per bunch of 10! Funds raised from the Daffodil Campaign support the Canadian Cancer Society’s mission to eradicate cancer and enhance the quality of life for those living with the disease. The society is the largest charitable funder of cancer research in Canada, and here in Nova Scotia are proud to provide a variety of services like Camp Goodtime, the Lodge that Gives, Cancer Connection and Smokers’ Helpline. For information on the Canadian Cancer Society, please visit our website cancer.ca or call our toll free number 1-800-639-0222. Thank you for your support!
