Poppy Days

On Friday, May 10, and Saturday, May 11, the red crepe paper poppy will be offered to the public by the American Legion Auxiliary.

This reminder of the sacrifice of countless thousands in four wars is an annual event undertaken by the members of Unit #261 in Kimball.

Volunteers from the Unit will once again take part in this nation-wide program in memory of the citizen soldiers who gave their lives in the cause of freedom.

Funds collected on Poppy Days are used to assist the needy veteran and his family. It is a self-help program as the Auxiliary’s familiar red paper poppy is hand-made by disabled and hospitalized veterans. These disabled and hospitalized veterans make the flowers by hand, petal by petal. It is part of a physical and psychological therapy program by veterans for veterans. These poppies are purchased by the Auxiliary and offered to the public, not at a price, but for a contribution … a few cents to say America remembers.
