Buddy Poppy Days for our Post will be coming up during the weekends in May. We will Not be distributing poppies on street corners, but we will be at several area businesses. All money received in the form of donations go directly to OUR Post Relief Fund. As prescribed by the National By-Laws, these funds can Only be used for things such as Aid, assistance and comfort of needy or disabled veterans, just to name a few. Buddy Poppy money collected here, stays HERE to help veterans in need (it does not go to Department or National).
We are asking each and everyone to give some time to your Post to help make our Buddy Program a success. If you can’t stand for 1-2 hours at a time, bring a lawn chair along and people will come to you (especially to guys with their VFW hats on!)
We will be doing Poppies on May 2, 3, and 4that Walmart on Hall Road. Kroger across the road from our Post on May 9, 10 and 11th. Lastly, we will be doing May 23, 24, and 25th and May 30, 31 and June 1st at Tractor Supply on Gratiot in Lenox.
If you would like to send a donation into the Post @ VFW Post 7573 (35011 23 Mile Rd. New Baltimore, Michigan 48047) to the attention of Jim Van Tiem or Sandi Van Tiem.
Thank you in advance!
