American Legion, Auxliary poppy program gets new leader at the home.

The Veterans of the Dorm unit have for years, been the source of the red poppy flowers sold each memorial day and veterans day by the American legion Auxiliary.

For the last 8 years or so, Jim has been running the program, which was located in one of the garages over by the parking lot and where the bike shop is.

Recently Jim has decided to retire and Tadd has taken over as leader of the project. And the poppy room has moved from the garage to one of the empty rooms on Rankin 2.

GRH4V vets produce over 20 thousand poppies each month, and sell them to AL posts all over the world.
