In Flanders Fields: Poppies

  
I hadn’t been given a pamphlet in years. They typically give a mint or tootsie roll along with be poppy when you donate in this area.

Locally, it was still called Armistice Day when I was young. That could be because we were isolated and immigrants or just a local throw back. In the US, we have to shift dates or rename things; as a 2nd gen American, it seems silly but whatever makes them happy.
