American Legion Auxiliary Poppy Days
May 1, 2019
The American Legion Auxiliary Poppy Days will be Friday, May 3, and Saturday, May 4. Tables will be set up at Reynolds Market and Shopko, with all money donated being used for Veteran programs. Connecting the visual image of the poppy with the sacrifice of service made by our veterans has been an important goal of the American Legion Auxiliary Poppy Program since its inception in 1921.
On Memorial Day and Veterans Day, millions of red crepe paper poppies, all handmade by veterans as part of their therapeutic rehabilitation, are distributed across the country in exchange for donations that go directly to assist disabled and hospitalized veterans in our communities.
