Poppies to Remember

Lake Stevens Memorial Post 181 - Lake Stevens, WA

About 30 Legionnaires and Auxiliary members from Lake Stevens Memorial Post/Unit 181 gave out 4400 poppies on Saturday, May 29, to remind people of Memorial Day. The members were located throughout the community at various business locations. Donations were collected for veterans and veterans programs in keeping with the original intent of the poppy that dates back to World War I. Community members were invited to the two Memorial Day services that will be held in town and at the local cemetery. Pictured here are Bill Lund, Korea, Army Airborne, 47-year member; Harold Ronnestad, Korea, Navy, 27-year member; and Dick Qualey, Vietnam, Army, 8-year member.
