    When you drop by for the tweetup tomorrow at noon, we’ll be doing a 2010 poppy coin exchange. Bring your spare change and walk away with Canada’s newest coloured circulation coin! See you soon Vancouver!

    didn’t get a chance to see it on granville during the olympics as the line up was WAY too long; the line up at the library during the paralympics was long as well but i caught a glimpse

    having the medals available during a tradeshow was a treat as i got a picture from that; now i have to find it and put it on my phone tho

    can’t wait to get new non-circulated poppy quarter, hope the line ups aren’t too bad
