Community comes through to help veterans

Once again, this community came through to help our veterans. Many thanks to all who supported our Poppy Drive.

We distributed more than 2,700 poppies and more than 300 cards explaining the poppy. With the help of this community, we raised more than $3,800 to help our local veterans.

Once again, thank you for your support.

Note to readers: Susan Melton is president of the Sterling American Legion Auxiliary Post 296.

No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
