Post 2001 – Veterans Day Weekend Poppy Volunteers

Comrade Legionnaires of Post 2001,

The annual Memorial Day weekend Poppy Distribution is on Friday, May 26 & Saturday, May 27 at the Giant Food Store in Ashburn Village.

Please see the attached sign-up sheet for the 3 or 3 1/2 hour shifts available for you to pick from to volunteer on this 2-day event.

We really need at least two Legionnaires for each shift. Three Legionnaires is preferred and as always the more the merrier. If you have never participated in the poppy distribution event, give it a try, you may enjoy it. I think that those that participated in the past have enjoyed the event. I certainly do.

Please look over the sign-up sheet and if you would like to volunteer for any shift contact me. If you cannot work a full shift, no problem. Any amount of time that you can volunteer is helpful and appreciated.

See You At The Poppy Distribution
