To the Editor:

It is that time of year again. We will be celebrating Veterans Day on Nov. 11, and it is time for our annual Buddy Poppy Drive.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars, members of its Ladies Auxiliary and the Jr. ROTC of Southside High School will be gathered at locations all around Selma on Saturday, Nov. 4 with Buddy Poppies taking donations.

The money gathered for these Poppies will be put to good use.

It goes into our relief fund, and this fund is used to help disabled veterans, widows,

dependents and their families.

You have always done your part with this annual event,

so I am calling on you again for help.

The Dallas County community really came through for us last year, as we raised about $1,250 for this program.

We are truly grateful for the community support. We ask again that they reach into their pockets and find it in their hearts to help out with our Buddy Poppy Drive.

We will be located at several locations in Selma on Saturday, Nov. 4, 2006.

These locations include:


Carter Drugs

Winn Dixie/Highland Avenue

Winn Dixie/West Dallas Avenue

Selma Curb Market


Again, we would like to say thanks to you and a heartfelt Thank You to the people of Dallas and the surrounding counties that make our Buddy Poppy drive a success.
