Mayor James Wehrle (right), here with Pat Rougeux (center), American Legion Ladies’ Auxiliary Unit 62 secretary and poppy chairperson, and Brenda Scarantine, Unit 62 treasurer (left), has issued a proclamation declaring today and Saturday as American Legion Auxiliary Poppy Days. Members of the post and Unit 62 will conduct their Poppy Program from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. today and Saturday at Wal-Mart, Comet Market and County Market. Proceeds from the poppies are used for veterans and their families and for a $300 scholarship Unit 62 presents every year to the daughter or granddaughter of a veteran who needs assistance to further her education.
