The Annual V.F.W. Buddy Poppy Days are May 20-21.
V.F.W. Auxiliary and Post members will be at various places receiving donations.
Money received is used for veterans welfare, donations to V.A. Hospitals, Missouri Veterans’ Home at Mexico, the V.F.W. National Home, local veterans at Mexico, and the U.S.O. Disabled veterans assemble the poppies and are paid for their week.
“Honor the Dead by Helping the Living” is the V.F.W. motto and that is what the donations do. No one is refused a poppy if they are unable to contribute. A poppy on anyone’s lapel honors all veterans.
