To the Editor,
Once again the residents of the Estherville community have shown their support of the Veterans of Foreign Wars buddy Poppy Days for 2011. Members of VFW Post #3388 and Auxiliary are pleased with the gifts received during their campaign, last week.
The community opened their hearts and wallets with monetary gifts that will be used for support of local veterans or their family members, for medical or disaster expenses. Thank you to al the volunteers who gave of their time, to make this a successful program. Thank you to Fareway, Hy-Vee, Pamida, and also for allowing the VFW Post and Auxiliary members in their stores. Last, but certainly not least, thank you to The Estherville Daily News and KILR radio for the publicity. Many people told me they saw it in the paper and heard it on the radio.
Buddy Poppy Chairman
