Punxsutawney Mayor Jim Wehrle (left) has proclaimed Friday and Saturday to be American Legion Auxiliary Poppy Days in Punxsutawney.

Members of the John Jacob Fisher American Legion Auxiliary will be distributing poppies at Walmart and County Market from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Proceeds from the Poppy Program are used for veterans’ projects and a scholarship for a daughter or granddaughter of a veteran who needs financial assistance to further her education.
