PC running slow not af all? networks a wear a poppy The American Legion Auxil- iary will be distributing poppies for contributions to promote contin- ued rehabilitaion efforts for veter- ans. Since that first auxiliary con- vention in 1921, the poppy program has flourished in the guiding hands and caring hearts of the Ameri- can Legion Auxiliary. The small red paper flower still blooms and its Poppy Days On Friday, May 10, and Satur- day, May 11, the red crepe paper poppy will be offered to the public by the American Legion Auxiliary. This reminder of the sacrifice of countless thousands in four wars is an annual event undertaken by the members of Unit #261 in Kim- ball. Volunteers from the Unit will once again take part in this nation-wide program in memory of the citizen soldiers who gave their lives in the cause of freedom. Funds collected on Poppy Days are used to assist the needy vet- eran and his family. It is a self-help program as the Auxiliary's famil- iar red paper poppy is hand-made by disabled and hospitalized vet- erans. These disabled and hospi- talized veterans make the flowers by hand, petal by petal. It is part of a physical and psychological ther- apy program by veterans for veter- message is still strong and clear, we remember your courage and sacri- fice, you did not serve in vain. Please watch for poppy pro: motions and displays and make a generous contribution .to support our veterans. Wear your poppy in honor of the millions of Americans who have willingly served and who are currently serving our nation, all too many of whom have made the ultimate sacrifice so that we ans. These poppies are purchased by the Auxiliary and offered to the public, not at a price, but for a contribution ... a few cents to say America remembers. This memorial flower was adopted by the American Legion Auxiliary in 1920, and since that time, programs have been con- ducted throughout the United States each year. Contributions made on Poppy Days are used by the local Unit to aid needy veterans and their fam- ilies in the community and in hos- pitals throughout the state. All proceeds are channeled directly into veterans' rehabilitation and welfare work for veterans' children and youth. Auxiliary members from Kim- ball Unit 261 will ask the pub- lic to pause for a moment, pin on a poppy, and wear it with pride, remembering the civilian who took an oath to serve his country and gave his life so that America could remain living in a free coun- try under God. There is not a bet- ter way to say THANK YOU than to wear a poppy as a reminder that we will "always remember." A poem for Poppy Day.
