Today is #NationalPoppyDay - stop by American Legon Post #133 in Palmetto Bay. Get your Poppy. Wear it proudly.

On the Friday before Memorial Day, wear a red poppy to honor the fallen and support the living who have worn our nation's uniform. Stop by the post to get your poppy and wear it proudly this Memorial Day Weekend.

National Poppy Day

May 24, 2024

The red poppy is a nationally recognized symbol of sacrifice worn by Americans since World War I to honor those who served and died for our country in all wars. It reminds Americans of the sacrifices made by our veterans while protecting our freedoms. On Sept. 27, 1920, the poppy became the official flower of the American Legion Family to memorialize the soldiers who fought and died during the war. In 1924, the distribution of poppies became a national program of The American Legion. Read more about the poppy.
