Buddy Poppy Event

May 17, 2019 - May 18, 2019

The dates have been set for the Annual Buddy Poppy Event. Mark your Calendars for May 17th and 18th with poppies to be distributed at Goode’s Greenhouse and Hy-Vee locations. The sign up sheets will be put up in the Post by the kitchen entrance so be sure to sign up to work a shift or two. Thanks for volunteering to help!!!

In 1924, the VFW registered the name “Buddy”® Poppy with the U.S. Patent Office. The “Buddy”® Poppy represents the blood shed by American military service members and reminds us of their sacrifices.

The “Buddy”® Poppy is assembled by disabled and needy veterans in VA medical facilities. Proceeds from the VFW “Buddy”® Poppy program:

• Provide compensation to the veterans who assemble the poppies. • Provide financial assistance in maintaining state and national veterans’ rehabilitation and service programs. • Partially supports the VFW National Home for Children.
