HMCS Alberni Museum and Memorial director Lewis Bartholomew has restocked the shelves  at the museum’s gift shop with I Will Remember lawn and patio signs for the upcoming Remembrance Day season.

“Although many customers have kept their signs up year round and the signs are sold year round, this is the biggest month of sales during the year,” said Bartholemew.

Signs come in two sizes (patio/shop window size and lawn/garden size) and are available in either English or French. The signs, which include the legs, sell for $20 and $30 each with 10 per cent of all sign sales going to support local Sea Cadets of 189 Port Augusta.

Due to the popularity of the signs last year extra stock was ordered this year to avoid running out as HAMM did last year.  Signs can be purchased at HAMM located at its new larger location in the south-west corner (Blue Arch Entrance) of the Comox Centre Mall Tuesday – Saturday 10 a.m.-4 p.m.  Other  I Will Remember merchandise is also available in the museum gift shop. For more information call the museum at 250-339-4322.
