Letter: May is “Poppy Month”

The American Legion Post 4 Auxiliary is proud to promote our annual “Poppy Drive.”

The poppy is the national symbol of remembrance and is worn or displayed during the month of May to honor the sacrifices our veterans have made for our country.

Each poppy is handmade by a disabled veteran as part of his or her therapeutic rehabilitation.

All donations received go directly to assisting disabled and hospitalized veterans and their families, with 75 percent staying right here in our community.

Please honor the men and women who have served and died for our country by wearing a poppy. Donation cans are located at businesses throughout Northern Colorado and at American Legion Post 4 located at 2124 County Road 54G northwest of Fort Collins. For more information call 970-484-0418.
