Thanks to all who generously gave to hospitalized veterans
The Almont American Legion Auxiliary thanks all of you who gave donations during our Poppy Days in Almont. We realize how tight the economy is this year and are extremely grateful that so many of you still managed to come through for our hospitalized veterans.
Standing in the middle of the street, dodging cars and semis, to offer you poppies is the scariest place I've ever been. But, it is a small matter compared to the sacrifices our veterans made for us.
I'd like to give special thanks to the elderly lady who was so apologetic because she didn't have any money to donate, for her promise to say a prayer each day for our hospitalized veterans. She symbolizes the reason those veterans fought to keep us free.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
