Thanks for buying poppies

By Staff | Oct 3, 2016

To the Editor:

Once more the residents of Emmet County and visitors have shown their support of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Buddy Poppy Campaign for 2016.

Members of John W. Brawford Post 3388 and Auxiliary are pleased with the gifts we received Sept 15 and 16. The money goes in a special fund for local veterans and family members who need help for medical or disaster expenses.

I want to thank all who were able to say yes, when I called for volunteers, especially my daughter, Sharon, who gave me three days. It made my work so much easier. If I’m still around next year, I hope she will do the same.

Thank you to Fareway, HyVee and Dollar General for allowing my workers in their stores. Last, but not least, thank KILR Radio and Estherville News for the publicity.

Sally Steil

Buddy Poppy Chairman.
