Due to COVID-19, the Strasburg American Legion Auxiliary’s Poppy Day, originally scheduled for June 5-6, will change in the fact that members will not be standing in our normal locations asking individuals if they would like a poppy and accepting donations for the poppies.
Instead, there will be a canister located at Strasburg Shortstop, the Strasburg Feed Mill, Boldt’s Service & Repair, Country Financial, or Village Office with the poppies either next to the canister or inside the canister.
Please feel free to take a poppy and if you want, leave a donation. The monies collected can only be used for veterans. Monies are spent on items for Illiana VA (Danville), Mattoon VA Clinic, and Honor Flight to name a few.
On behalf of the veterans that we assist, thank you.
