Lakeville Post 210 has a very active Buddy Poppy Program led by Post Service Officer Marc Anderson. In 2 weekends in May 2017 Marc and his crew raised over $18,000 for veteran's relief programs!
Examples of the uses of the funds raised are donations made to the Hastings Veterans Home to build a new greenhouse for therapeutic gardening activities. Rehabilitation of a local veterans home after it was discovered that it had a significant mold infestation the needed to be rehabilitated. Americanism activities in the schools and emergency aid to veterans and families in need.
Thank you to Lakeville residents and visitors who gave so generously to support this worthy cause.
Special Thank you to key local business that allowed us to distribute Poppies!
