American Legion Auxiliary Sauls-Bridges Unit 13, Inc. (“ALA Unit 13”) will be distributing Memorial Poppies during Veterans Day weekend. We will be located at Sam’s Club on Friday, Saturday and Sunday November 8th, 9th, and 10th. Poppies will also be available Monday, November 11th at American Legion Post 13’s annual Veterans Day Breakfast and at the Veterans Day Parade.
Memorial Poppies provide our community with an opportunity to remember our veterans and their sacrifices, to thank them, and to educate our children and youth about the significance and history of the Poppy. We are grateful that our community respects and honors our veterans and enjoys talking to them about their service.
We are also grateful to our community for partnering with us as we honor and assist our veterans. The Poppy funds donated during Veterans Day weekend will provide Christmas dinners to families of local veterans in need.
