Poppy Days 'Thank-you"

Send a link to a friend  Share

To the editor:

The American Legion and American Legion Auxiliary would like to thank all who volunteered on Poppy Days on Memorial weekend by distributing the poppies. Without their help, Poppy Days would have not been possible.

We would also like to thank the businesses that allowed the volunteers to stand at their stores Walmart, Big R, Ace Hardware, and Lincoln IGA. Thanks to the City of Lincoln for allowing our volunteers to be present at Broadwell and McLean Streets on Saturday. Also, thanks to Country Aire in Atlanta for letting us place poppies at their restaurant.


[to top of second column in this letter]

Poppy Days is such an important fundraiser for the work that is done for our Veterans.

We especially would like to thank all those that donated for their poppies and helped make the Poppy Days a great success and a wonderful way to support and honor our veterans.
