May 21: The Redwood Falls Legion Auxiliary along with the Redwood County VFW are making available Poppies for this Memorial Day. Poppies will be available at Redwood Falls Runnings Store on May 21st during store hours. By connecting the visual image of the poppy with the sacrifice of service made by our veterans the local Posts ask that people wear a poppy through Memorial Day and on Veterans Day. Millions of red poppies—all handmade by veterans as part of their therapeutic rehabilitation—are distributed across the country in exchange for donations that go directly to assist disabled and hospitalized veterans in our communities. Remember our fallen veterans and honor those in our veteran’s facilities by wearing a poppy.
