Poppies good way to remember defenders of freedom

To the editor:

Memorial Day will soon be here, and once again it will be time for us to remember all the military people who have given their lives. One way to remember these veterans is by wearing the red poppy.

May 24 has been designated as our National Poppy Day. Many local veterans will be approaching the citizens of Shawano and surrounding areas to donate to this worthy cause. All monies collected will be used to support military personnel and their families.

We, the American Legion and the American Legion Auxiliary, are asking for your support so that we can continue to help these veterans.

If you wish to make a donation, the American Legion at 850 S. Lincoln St. in Shawano will accept these donations during business hours, after 1 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays.

Rosemary Koeller,
