On behalf of the American Legion Auxiliary, Unit 89 of Minocqua, I would like to express our appreciation to Save More Market Place, Kwik Trip, TJ's Butcher Block, Trig's and the Post Offices of Minocqua and Woodruff for allowing us to use their sites to conduct our annual distribution of poppies this past Memorial weekend. The donations received in exchange for poppies were quite generous this year and will all be sent to and used by needy veterans and their families. We also want to extend heartfelt thanks to members of Post 89 and local volunteers for their help. If you have never distributed poppies you have missed the expressions of patriotism exhibited by donors. It is so gratifying to know there are so many citizens who care about our veterans, both the living and those sacrificed in their service to this country. Thank you so much.
