To the editor:
The Monticello American Legion Auxiliary Unit 260 would like to thank the Monticello community for its support during our Poppy Day weekend.
Thank you to Hi-Way Liquors, Monticello Post Office, Cub Foods and Walmart for allowing our volunteers to distribute poppies to the community in front of their businesses.
The memorial poppy reminds us of the millions who sacrificed their lives and health to keep our nation free and is a memorial to their bravery.
The poppy is handmade by veterans who receive a small stipend for each poppy they make.
The contributions that were made from the distribution of the poppy are devoted entirely to rehabilitation and assistance for veterans and their families.
On behalf of our veterans, thank you to our community for your support of our Poppy program.
