The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 520 in Albemarle will ask for
donations and distributing Buddy Poppies in honor of Veterans Day,
Nov. 5 and Nov. 11, in the Goody’s Shopping Center from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
The poppies are made by veterans in VA hospitals throughout the United
States and have become a memorial symbol. The use of the Buddy Poppy
stems from the war poem, “In Flanders Field,” by John McCrae.
