Poppy Sales to be held May 18-19 for veterans

Posted on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 8:42 am

On Friday, May 18 and Saturday, May 19, members of the local Ladies Auxiliary to the Vandalia Memorial Post No. 2173 will be distributing Poppies for sale to provide funds to help with Veterans’ needs, support our VFW National Home for Children and Veterans’ Hospital and Nursing Home activities.
Some members of the Brice Happy Hustlers 4-H Club will be helping in order to earn credit for community service. Residents are encouraged to give generously and thank these young people. The V.F.W. Pledge is “Honor the Dead by Helping the Living.”
The Poppies are made by patients in veterans hospitals throughout the United States. The work provides therapy and they are paid for their work.
When you purchase your Poppy, wear it proudly. They Gave, Will You?
