Swaskegame Unit 14 President and 2013 poppy Chairman Mary E. Ellis recently awarded certificates of appreciation to The American Legion Post 14 and Sons of The American Legion Squadron 14 for their participation in the Unit's 2013 Poppy distribution day. Shown in the photos are members of the organizations who stood shifts to collect contributions. President Ellis presented poppy pins to Legionnaires Robert Ellis and Commander Dennis Kuneff and Sons Ron Martin (2013 Commander), Rick Pederson, current Commander Steve Morang, and Rob Pederson. Certificates were also given to representatives of businesses that allowed the unit to be on their properties for this fundraiser: Bashas', Walgreens (Stockton Hill and Airway), and Walmart. Contributions received from poppy distribution days are only to be used to benefit veterans, their families, and current active duty personnel.
The unit is very grateful to the citizens of the community who helped support this year's Poppy Day.
