Yorktown VFW Auxiliary and the Yorktown VFW Post #8135 wish to extend a heartfelt thank you to the communities of Yorktown and Weesatche and other surrounding communities for supporting the Annual Buddy Poppy Day, which was held Nov. 8. A special thank you to the Yorktown Post Office, Lowe’s Supermarket, The Texan, and Dollar General for allowing the VFW Auxiliary to set up tables outside their businesses.
Thank you to the businesses placing cans for poppy donations: Styles by Susanne, Hairworks, Kraege’s, Gerhardt’s Jewelry, Aunt Di’s Kountry Kitchen, and Leske’s Oil/Conoco. The day would not have been a success without the assistance of the 24 volunteers who staffed the stations and walked through the Main Street of Yorktown and Weesatche.
Donations from the VFW Auxiliary Buddy Poppy event are used to aid veterans in various ways. Contact the organization if you have any questions or would like to join. Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month.
Once again, thanks for supporting the veterans with your participation in the Annual Buddy Poppy Day.
JoAnn Reitz, Chairman
