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 our country in all wars. The members of James Reeder Post #770, Atwood American Legion Auxiliary will be in strategic places downtown

Atwood on Friday and Saturday, May 21 & 22 with the red poppies and a donation container.

Wearing a red poppy reminds Americans of the sacrifices made by our veterans while protecting our freedoms. Wear a poppy to honor those who have worn our nation’s uniform.

The donation you make for your poppy will be used by the American Legion family for their programs that support veterans. When you are making your donation, please be sure and thank the Auxiliary or Legion members for what they do for the community.
