Poppy Days kicks off Aug. 8

GREENVILLE – Greenville Mayor Mike Bowers purchased the first poppy July 29 as the Disabled American Veterans Chapter #57 of Darke County kicks off its annual For-Get-Me-Not fundraiser. Volunteers will be posted at various businesses around Greenville Aug. 8 and 9.

Darke County DAV Commander Robert A. Foster thanked Greenville residents and businesses for supporting this cause each year.

“Thank you from all of us to all of you,” he said. “May God bless you, our veterans past and present, our active military and the country we all love.”

Foster had a special thank you to the Darke County Fair Board, American Legion Post 140, Leis Realty, VFW Post 7262 Bosters, Francis Furniture, Second National Bank and Hittle Buick GMC. “Without support like theirs we could not help veterans like we want to,” Foster said.
