ALA Unit 125 will offer poppies

PRINCETON — American Legion Woman’s Auxiliary Unit 125 of Princeton will be out
in the community at various businesses May 24 and 25 to offer red poppies to the public for donations.

Poppy chairman Bernice Burke announced that the monies realized from this year’s Poppy Day weekend will be used for expenses for the workshops the Unit does for local veterans in the four nursing homes the Unit serves each month. Also noted is the fact that Illinois is the only state where the veterans in Illinois VA hospitals and nursing homes still make all the poppies for distribution and monetary donations.
