The annual V.F.W. Buddy Poppy Days are May 19-20. V.F.W. Auxiliary and Post members will be at business places accepting donations.
Money received is used for veterans welfare. Donations are made to the Veterans Hospitals in Missouri, the Mexico Veteran’s Home, V.F.W. National Home, in Michigan, local veterans in Mexico, and the U.S.O.
Disabled veterans assemble the poppies and are paid for their work. The V.F.W. motto is “Honor the dead by helping the living.” No one is refused a poppy. A poppy on anyone’s lapel honors all veterans.
