Once again the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United Sates of America Post 4362 of Scappoose will be giving out free Buddy Poppies on May 18 and 19. You will find us at Fred Meyer, the Post Office, Grocery Outlet and Ichabod's Restaurant.
These poppies are made by disabled veterans in VA hospitals throughout the United States. They are then shipped to the states VFW posts. The states VFW posts then sends them to individual posts throughout the state, where they are given out to their communities.
Donations are welcome. This money raised is used to help veterans, our troops and their families.
So when you see a VFW member giving out Buddy Poppies, stop and say hello. Give what you can and wear the poppy proudly. We served to protect our way of life. So honor our service by wearing a Buddy Poppy.
Larry M. Newman, VFW Post 4362, Buddy Poppy chairman, Scappoose
