Remember the sacrifices of our veterans

Thanks Marshalltown community for pitching in to help make our recent Poppy Days a huge success. American Legion Auxiliary #46 appreciated the courtesy of WalMart, HyVee, Fareway and Iowa Veterans Home in permitting volunteers from the Legion, Sons and Auxiliary to spend many hours over three days last week distributing poppies.

Our volunteers are special and we appreciate their time and effort – your response is their thank you.

Hats off to Arlene Kremer and her granddaughter for the beautiful poppy window display at the Marshall Town Center. Thanks also to the mall’s staff for their assistance. Through the years the center has been very gracious in granting us permission to use one of their windows for our display.

A poppy says – REMEMBRANCE – remember the sacrifices of our veterans. May we never take for granted the freedoms we enjoy.
