Memorial Day Poppy Distribution: Sign up Now!

Memorial Day Poppy Distribution

In Flanders fields the poppies blow…

Poppy distribution will be conducted on Friday May 25 and Saturday May 26 at all of our usual locations:

QFC Westgate, Edmonds
QFC Mukilteo,
Fred Myer, Lynnwood (Alderwood Mall Pkwy)
Central Market, Mill Creek.

We already have a number of you signed up for shifts on one or both days, at one or more locations. Please note that we will not be at Central Market on Sunday this year, but rather on Friday and Saturday.

We ask that all of our members consider devoting at least a full day to this event, our principal fund raising event and an excellent opportunity to expose VFW to the public. Some of you may find a full day taxing, but perhaps you would consider a half day shift on each day. It is a great service to our Post and our fellow veterans and a very pleasant experience. Family and friends are welcome as well.

Our Poppy Chair, Bob Crawford, will circulate sign up sheets at the Post meeting on Wednesday, March 21 and again at the April 18 meeting. If you find you can’t make the meeting, email either Comrade Crawford, <>, or your Commander. <> and let us know your time and location preference.
