Delray Beach VFW Post 4141 and the Delray Beach Public Library will be joining forces to honor veterans. Commander Ed Madson of the VFW Post will be distributing poppies at the Delray Beach Public Library at 100 West Atlantic Avenue, on Saturday, November 9, 2013 from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. The practice of wearing poppies is traditionally done on Memorial Day and Veterans Day to honor veterans and its origin is from the poem in Flanders Field written by John McCrae in 1915. A Delray Beach veteran and Library volunteer has generously donated the funds for the poppies that will be distributed to veterans. Please visit the Library on Saturday November 9 from 1 – 3:00 p.m. to honor our veterans.
