VFW Post 2003 Ladies Auxiliary would like to thank you for your support and generosity for our veterans through donations for Buddy Poppies. The Buddy Poppy flower represents the blood shed by American service members and sacrifices that will not be forgotten. The poppies are assembled by disabled veterans in VA hospitals and state homes. The proceeds are placed in a relief fund to be used solely for veterans. Thank you to the communities of Colfax, Applegate, Weimar, Meadow Vista and others who supported the veterans. The ladies who volunteered their time were Sandy Hannigan, Betty Lugena, Beth Murphy, Carol Parks, Connie Kirby, Suzanne Candler, Maria Weber, Nancy Enders and Valerie Sussek. Maria Weber, Buddy Poppy chairman
