Poppies support Veterans

May 20, 2012
The Journal

To the editor:

It is May, the month of sunshine, flowers and Memorial Day.

The Auxiliary of Seifert Bianchi Unit 132 American Legion would like to take this opportunity to offer you our Memorial Poppy, hand made by Veterans. The makers are paid for each poppy they finish. This activity is helpful as therapy and a small monetary aid. This is the only poppy which is hand made.

Where does each donation go?

Every cent of your donation goes into our Rehabilitation Fund, to be used for the benefit of sick or needy veterans and their immediate families.

It helps to purchase for the Auxiliary Gift shops at the Minneapolis Veterans' Medical Centers and Luverne Nursing Home at Christmas time. Here a Veteran can select gifts for their family free of charge.

It helps to sponsor coffee hours at the Hospital Medical Center and Bingo parties for hospital patients and provides prizes and refreshments.

It makes it possible for us to purchase postage stamps, stationery, socks, personal grooming articles, etc., which are distributed by volunteer American Auxiliary members. All free of charge to the veterans.

It enables 'the Auxiliary to remember veterans in Convalescent Homes or confined to their own homes due to illness.

All this and more benefits arc derived from the donations received from the American Legion Auxiliary poppy.

Remember those less fortunate than you and those who sacrificed so much for their country in its hour of need. Please help us to keep up this good work.

For God and Country,

Dorothy Weller

President, New Ulm Auxiliary

Joyce Rueckert

Poppy Chairperson
