Poppy sales coming

Saturday, members of the American Legion post and auxiliary will be out selling poppies. Members will be posted at I.G.A., Walmart and Rural King. We wish to thank these businesss ahead of time for supporting our veterans and this endeavor to help them. Each poppy is a representative of the lives that were sacrificed to keep our country free.

As we do every year around Memorial Day, rain or shine, we will be selling poppies made by veterans at Sandusky’s Ohio Veterans Home. The number of veterans helping is decreasing each year and some post and auxiliaries have stepped up to help them. Every dollar made is spent on veterans and their families. No monies are used on the post homes or auxiliary functions. When you see us out there, we hope you will remember freedom is NOT free. The men and women in uniform will forever be in our hearts. John15:13: “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”

If you miss us this weekend, you will have another chance to give. The Veterans of Foreign Wars will be out on Memorial Day weekend.

Thank you for all you support.

Barbara Trapp, chaplain,

American Legion Auxiliary #169 Tiffin
