Poppy proclamation

The Stewartville American Legion Auxiliary Unit 164 will distribute poppies for a donation at Fareway, Stewartville's grocery store, on National Poppy Day, Friday, May 27. Proceeds will benefit veterans programs across the area and state. Legion Auxiliary members who will distribute the poppies include, standing from left, Diane Ramaker, Peggy Paulson and Wanda Prescher. Mayor Jimmie-John King, seated in center, signed a proclamation last week declaring May Poppy Month in the city of Stewartville. "The American Legion Auxiliary, the American Legion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary have adopted the poppy as their commemorative symbol," the proclamation states. "The memorial poppy, assembled by disabled veterans, pays respectful tribute to those killed in war, and also benefits living veterans and their families."
