23 Apr 2018 Buddy Poppy Campaign
VFW Post 1638 and Auxiliary will be out in the Merrill community distributing the “Buddy Poppy” the traditional remembrance tribute for all those who have gave the ultimate sacrifice in defense of the United States of America in all wars. May 18th will kick off the drive and will conclude May 27th.
Our Vets and Families will be at a variety of locations throughout the week, including Dave’s County Market, Piggly Wiggly, and Pine Ridge Mobil. Please join us in financially supporting our local veterans. All money donated during the “Buddy Poppy” drive is only used to support our local veterans and veterans families.
2018 marks the 75th Anniversary of the charter of Schmitt – Manecke – Donner Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1638 Auxiliary so we will have some special anniversary “Buddy Poppy’s” to show your support.
Please give and if you see “Bud” our WWII Vet and “Buddy Poppy” top distributor. Make sure you tell him Thank You for his service and give him a little extra to make him smile.
