Birthday Cards For A 100 Year Old Veteran!

A Second World War veteran on Prince Edward Island is about to become a centenarian and his granddaughter is asking the public to pitch in with a birthday card campaign.
Percy DesRoches turns 100 on April 18 and a big party was in the works, but COVID-19 had other plans.
Now Percy’s granddaughter Jenna hopes to honour the Second World War vet another way, putting the call out online to send cards and well wishes.
