Thursday is Poppy Day

Today is Poppy Day in America.

Buffalo Mayor Mike Johnson issued a proclamation at the City Council meeting on Tuesday to honor the nation’s soldiers who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Yesterday, American Legion Auxiliary member Peggy Sillivan explained how the Poppy Day came to be…

According to Sillivan, more than 5 million poppies were given out in 2017 for donations totaling just short of $4 million.

All the proceeds go to support Veterans medical services.
