Letter to the Editor by Karen Mathis

To the Editor:

Friday, October 7, the VFW Auxiliary held an annual poppy campaign in Waukon. The donations received will support our local veterans, patriot quilts, veterans hospitals and nursing homes, youth activities and the National Home for Families.

The generous contributions by our community will help to improve the lives of veterans, service members and their families by bringing them needed services and assistance. The poppy represents the blood shed by American service members, and your donations tell them you will not forget them. The Auxiliary greatly appreciates your donations.
