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 2012. Members of the VFW Post #3388 and its 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 all the volunteers who gave of their time to make this a successful program again this year. Thank you to Fareway, Hy-Vee, Pamida and Alco for allowing the VFW Post and Auxiliary members into their stores. Last but not least, thank you to the Estherville Daily news and KILR radio for the publicity.
