Buddy Poppy Day will be Friday

May 10, 2013

May 17 in Fulda
Members of the Fulda VFW Post 9017 Ladies Auxiliary want to remind area residents that Buddy Poppy Day will be Friday, May 17th.

Buddy Poppy sales sites will at Maynards Grocery, Caseys, The Fulda Post Office.

Buddy Poppy cards are also in many of the Fulda businesses.

The VFW conducted its first poppy distribution before Memorial Day in 1922, becoming the first veterans' organization to organize a nationwide distribution. The poppy soon was adopted as the official memorial flower of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States.

The Buddy Poppy program provides financial assistance in maintaining state and national veterans' rehabilitation and service programs and partially supports the VFW National Home for orphans and widows of our nation's veterans.
