Successful Poppy Day for legion, auxiliary

Published: Thursday, July 25, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

Thanks to you, the public, for your support of one of the oldest programs of the American Legion.

The legion would like to thank all the businesses that allowed us to use their facilities for our poppy distribution. We are sure the disabled hospitalized veterans do extend their thanks and gratitude for remembering them at this time and in this way.

We also want to thank the 14 Post 902 Legionnaires, Poppy Queen Emmi Gladhill, and the 13 Unit 902 Auxiliary members for their time and commitment to this important program. Thank you to everyone who helped in any way to make this a successful project.
