In support of the Canadian Cancer Society, Sun Peaks Municipal Council has proclaimed April Daffodil Month and April 27th Daffodil Day.
The municipality is encouraging everyone to wear a daffodil to show support for persons living with cancer.
Daffodils were first used by the Canadian Cancer Society in 1956 as hand-outs to spread the message about cancer. When recipients wanted to pay for the flowers, the society realized they could be used as a fundraiser, and in 1957 the first “daffodil days” fundraising began. The society is now the world’s largest purchaser of daffodils.
