American Legion Auxiliary Unit #174 to distribute poppies on Remembrance Day
To The Press
Today (Friday, May 24) is Poppy Day, in Charles City as well as across America.
American Legion and Legion Auxiliary members will distribute poppies around Charles City today at various businesses.
The red poppy is a nationally recognized symbol of sacrifice, worn by Americans since World War I to honor those who served and died for their country in all wars. It reminds Americans of the sacrifices made by veterans while protecting America’s freedoms.
All donations received through the sale of poppies are used by the American Legion for programs that support veterans, the military community and their families.
