4-H Club distributes Memorial Day poppies

Members of the Town ‘N Kountry Kids 4-H Red Club went door to door in Woonsocket (and beyond) to distribute poppies and accept donations for the Woonsocket American Legion Auxiliary to use to assist Veterans. The red poppy, or Remembrance Poppy, has been a symbol of lives lost to war since World War I (1914–1918), and it plays a big part in the history of Memorial Day. The poppy is a symbol of war casualties and started with the poem “In Flanders Fields.” The community responded very generously to this effort!
