The local V.F.W. Post 9424 had a successful poppy drive and ceremony on the Veteran’s day weekend.

The money raised from the poppies always goes to veterans in need and in nursing homes or hospitals.

Last year’s money went to the V.F.W. national home for veteran’s children, the U.S.O. for military men in service in foreign countries, the badger honor flight, the Bobby Nelson Christmas fund for veterans in the Madison Veterans Hospital, flowers for deceased veterans and local vets in need.

A big thank you is well deserved for the many people who donated.
