Poppies available today as they honor those who’ve served

Charles City, Iowa –

Today, May 24, marks National Poppy day, which commemorates the sacrifice worn by Americans since World War I to honor those who served and died for our country in all wars.

Hull added donations go to the veterans and to wear the poppy with pride.

National Poppy Day is celebrated in conjunction with Memorial Day.  Each town has specific Memorial Day celebrations planned.

Chris was born in Webster City and raised in Charles City. As a young kid, he would always be caught singing along to songs on the radio. He says he's good at karaoke but we think otherwise. ;) In his free time, he enjoys beginning new projects at home and hardly ever finishing them. Chris lives in Charles City with his wife Vicki, daughter Brynlee and son Jaxon.
