A sincere thank you to all in our community for supporting our annual fundraiser on Saturday, May 20. Since 1921, the red poppy has represented the sacrifices of all military who have given their lives, served or are serving to protect our American freedoms.
All poppy donations benefit various areas of military needs — Union Grove Veterans Home, Zablocki VA, Fischer House, Homeless Female Vets Shelters in Janesville and Milwaukee, Camp American Legion at Lake Tomahawk,WI, Kenosha Outreach, USO and scholarship Funds for Families among other programs.
We shall continue to ask Americans to "Wear A Poppy." Remember that our freedoms are not free.
