AL_Poppy

Did you know that National Poppy Day® is May 25, 2018? Please join us and wear a poppy in honor of our American veterans.

The poppy flower flourished in France and Belgium after World War I. Scientists attributed the growth of the poppies to the enriched soil from lime in rubble left by the war. From the dirt and mud grew a beautiful, red poppy – a symbol of resilience shown by our nation’s service members.
