Poppy Day says 'Remember'
Ellsworth Wisconsin 126 S. Chestnut St. 54011

The red crepe paper poppy will be offered to the public, Wednesday, May 21, by Kinne-Englehart Post 204, American Legion Auxiliary.

Auxiliary members ask the public to pause for a moment, pin on a poppy and wear it with pride, remembering the civilians who took an oath to serve their country and gave their lives so that American would survive. 

Contributions made on Poppy Day are used by the local Auxiliary unit to aid needy veterans and their families in the community and in VA hospitals in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
