Poppie sales

May 02, 2012

North Oakland VFW Post 334 will be selling Buddy Poppies May 10, 11 and 12 at many locations in North Oakland County. The Veteran's of Foreign Wars carries out this fund raiser annually and the money raised is used to assist needy and disabled veterans in North Oakland County as well as support the VFW National Home in Eaton Rapids, Michigan.

James Trumble is the chairman of the Post's 2012 Buddy Poppy sales effort. "The goal is to raise $20,000.00 during the three day sales effort," Trumble explained, "Our Post raised more than $18,000.00 last year and our goal is to beat that record this year."

The Post started in 1984 and members reside in Lake Orion, Oxford, Leonard, Clarkston, Bloomfield Hills, Auburn Hills and Rochester Hills. For more information about joining the Post veterans are encouraged to call Ernie Baker at 248-391-6933.
