(Beaver Dam) Local American Legion Auxiliary members say this year’s National Poppy Day was a success. The day, held before Memorial Day holiday, shows support for families of fallen soldiers as well as living veterans.
Beaver Dam Auxiliary members stood outside local businesses to hand out handmade poppy’s made by veterans and take donations. Organizers say Fleet Farm, Piggly Wiggly, and Rechek’s Food Pride have supported local veterans for years and made this year’s Poppy Drive possible. All money raised stays in the community to benefit veterans and their families.
