SUBMITTED by Carolyn Bradstreet, American Legion Auxiliary, James R. Hickey Post 120 (28-May-2011)

Volunteers raising money via Poppy donations
The tradition of wearing a poppy from "Flanders Field" began as a way of honoring those who died in World War I. The poppy was made the official memorial flower of The American Legion in 1920 and the American Legion Auxiliary in 1921. The poppy program was made a national program in 1924. To this day American Legions across this country ask for poppy donations to honor all those who gave their lives and those who served so we could continue to enjoy the freedoms this country offers its citizens.

Donna Wirth and James Arthurton continue the tradition representing James R. Hickey Post 120 in Palmyra. A huge thank-you is extended to all who so generously gave and to those who volunteered their time to support this worthy cause. All monies collected will go to veterans' programs.
