Marshalltown Poppy Days approaching

The theme for this year is “A Poppy says – Remembrance.” Remember the sacrifices of our veterans.

Members from the American Legion, Auxiliary and the Sons of the American Legion will be distributing Poppies made at the Iowa Veterans Home here in Marshalltown on May 15,16,17. Watch for the faithful volunteers at WalMart, HyVee, Fareway, Legion Post Home and Iowa Veterans Home. Without the help of our dedicated workers and the Marshalltown Community this project would not be successful. Take time to check the decorated Poppy window at the Marshalltown Center which has, for many years, provided us with a space for our display.

Your donations, as always, go toward local Veterans’ projects. Please pitch in to help make this a banner year. Never take for granted the freedoms we enjoy.
