Poppy Sales are on Saturday, November 7th from 1:00-4:00pm. Our Troop is sponsored by Smyrna VFW Post 8422 (Veterans of Foreign Wars). Each year on the Saturday prior to Veteran’s Day, we help the VFW by handing out red flower poppies for people to wear, while collecting donations for the VFW. This money is used to support local veterans and their families.
Poppies symbolize remembrance of our Veterans and the sacrifices they have made for our Country. Please help us thank our sponsoring organization, and honor our veterans by participating in this year’s effort. Scouts & Parents will need to sign up on Signup Genius. (The link to sign up will be sent out in a separate email.)
This time will be recorded as community service hours.
Details: Arrive at the VFW at 12:00. Distribute poppies from 1-4pm. Return to VFW with money & remaining poppies.
We also need a few Scouts & Parents to help with counting the money at the VFW following the poppy sales.
