Memorial Day poppy distribution at WS Thriftway
May 25 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Join American Legion Post 160 and ALA Unit 160 this Saturday May 25 and Sunday May 26 at the Morgan Junction Thriftway where members will distribute bright red poppies in honor of our fallen service members. The poppy has become an internationally recognized symbol of the lives sacrificed in war and the hope that none died in vain. One hundred percent of donations go directly to help local veterans.

On September 27, 1920, the poppy became the official flower of The American Legion family to memorialize the soldiers who fought and died during the war. In 1924, the distribution of poppies became a national program of The American Legion.

Each year, members of The American Legion family, led by the American Legion Auxiliary, distribute poppies with a request that the person receiving the flower make a donation to support the future of veterans, active-duty military personnel and their families with medical and financial needs.
