Poppy Days have become a familiar tradition in almost every American community. This distribution of the bright red memorial flower to the public is one of the oldest and most widely recognized programs of the American Legion. Meeting the continuing needs of our veterans should be the concern of every American who values his or her freedom. The American Legion promotes the poppy as a symbol of the sacrifices our military have made, and a symbol to open people’s hearts and inspire them to donate. American Legion members distribute millions of poppies annually across the country in exchange for donations that go directly to assist disabled and hospitalized veterans in our community. During May the American Legion and Auxiliary will be distributing poppies and collecting donations. Please donate and be proud to wear a Red Poppy to honor the sacrifices our veterans have made.
