To the editor:
The members of the Daniel Simpson American Legion Auxiliary Elburn Unit #630 wish to thank the community for their generosity toward our Poppy Days on May 17 and 18. Your show of support for this important program is greatly appreciated. We would also like to thank the many Legion and Auxiliary volunteers who put in hours on the streets. Legionnaires – John Anderson, Charles Coffey, Dan Kolzow, Steve Lindquist, Chris Mulvihill, and Norm Welker. Auxiliary Members – Kay Swift, Marleah Anderson, Lois Mack, Janet Herra, Robin Harley, and Mary Coffey.
Many thanks go out to the area businesses that allowed us to be inside or outside of their buildings. They include Jewel/Osco, Ream’s Meat Market, Elburn Post Office, Dr. Kenneth Baumruck, The Corner Grind, Briana’s, and the Aurora Amvets. Thank you for all courtesies extended to our volunteers.
All the proceeds of Poppy Days go towards Veterans and their families. Elburn Auxiliary has donated $3,800 dollars to Veteran’s programs this past year. The Elburn Unit hopes to continue to help with the needs of our Veterans who have and are currently giving so much for our country. We hope everyone enjoyed their Memorial Day and took some time to reflect on the reason for the holiday…Remembering those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
Robin Harley and Mary Coffey, Poppy Chairmen
