Letter: Thanks for helping Buddy Poppy Campaign

May 30, 2002

To the Editor:

The Olsen-McGraw-Thompson VFW Post 6401 of Bonner Springs thanks everyone who contributed to our Buddy Poppy Campaign this past weekend.

We greatly appreciate the following area merchants who gave us permission to solicit donations for the Buddy Poppies on there premises: Bonner Springs Thriftway, Vaughn-Trent Thrift Store, Price Chopper and Wal-Mart. During time of Memorial Day and Veterans' Day, we solicit donations for Buddy Poppies. The funds derived from this are primarily used to provide food, necessities, aid and various programs for veteran patients at Leavenworth VA Medical Center.

Thank you all for your support and contributions. This is one way we all can show our appreciation to those who gave part of their life to help provide the freedoms we enjoy as Americans. The veterans also thank you.

Jim Jenkins

Commander
