Poppy Day in Grant PDF Print E-mail

 

Friday, May 23 was Poppy Day in Grant with businesses being visited by volunteers selling the hand-made poppy flowers as part of Memorial Day activities. Michelle Ross was one of the many locals who purchased a poppy to wear with Laura Dreiling and Kadie Hanson helping sell the poppies door-to-door. The remembrance poppy has been used since 1920.  Inspired by the World War I poem “In Flanders Fields,” they were first used by the American Legion to commemorate American soldiers who died in that war.
