The Moose Jaw branch for the Canadian Cancer Society is back in business and open to the public.

The office was closed for several weeks as there was a need to find an administrator, Meagan Rocheleau, to handle the day-to-day operations for the office of the community-based office for the national organization.   

“We’re fully staffed now and busily recruiting volunteers,” Canadian Cancer Society executive director Keith Karasin told the Times-Herald. “We have the daffodil campaign coming up and the Relay for Life.”

The daffodil campaign includes fresh flower sales, sales of a new daffodil pin and daffodil day on top of traditional residential canvassing.

Karasin said they are busy taking fresh flower presale orders from businesses for the daffodil campaign, set to take place in March.

The campaign is an annual event always set for March, but the organization needs volunteers in the months leading up to prepare. “We will also have daffodil pins on sale at stores, and then we go into the Relay for Life Campaign starting in May and June,” Karasin said.
