May is Buddy Poppy Month
West Fargo Mayor Rich Mattern signs the proclamation designating May as Buddy Poppy month with West Fargo VFW President Jackie Faith witnessing the occasion. The signing was held at the annual Awards Banquet at the West Fargo VFW on April 22. VFW Buddy Poppies are assembled by disabled veterans with the proceeds of the fundraising campaign used exclusively to benefit disabled and needy veterans and the widows and orphans of deceased veterans. The observance also helps remember the brave men and women who have risked their lives in defense of the freedoms everyone continues to enjoy as Americans.
