Poppy Day May 10

To honor those who died for our freedom

American Legion Auxiliary volunteers will distribute the familiar red, handcrafted poppies honoring America’s war dead Saturday, May 10, designated as Poppy Day by Auxiliary Unit #261 in Kimball. They will begin selling them Friday, May 9, afternoon, and continue Saturday morning May 10.

Each nine-piece poppy is made by veterans for veterans in Auxiliary-sponsored Poppy Shops that supplement physical and psychological therapy needed by hospitalized and disabled veterans. The Auxiliary provides the materials and the volunteers. The veteran makes the poppy and is paid a small amount for each painstakingly-made flower. For some, it is his or her only income.
