The Woodbury American Legion Post 501 & VFW Post 9024 will host its semi-annual Poppy Days on 19, 20 and 21 of May 2022. Poppies will be distributed by Post veterans at Woodbury businesses including Sam’s Club, Walmart, Total Wine, Jerry’s, Hy-Vee (Oakdale) and Cub from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on those dates. Poppy Days is the primary revenue generator for our Posts. With these donations we are able to support veterans, provide high cchool scholarships, American Legion Boys State, Legion Baseball, and Woodbury charities that promote veterans’ care.
The red poppy is a nationally recognized symbol of sacrifice worn by Americans since World War I to honor those who served and died for our country. The poppy reminds Americans of the sacrifices made by veterans while protecting this countries freedom. The poppy became the official flower of The American Legion in September 1920 and in 1924, the distribution of poppies became a national program of The American Legion.
Stop by and get a poppy and wear it to honor those who have worn our nation’s uniform.
