In 2016, the Rayson-Miller Post 899 began its formal initiative of Veterans Supporting Veterans. This initiative follows the mission of the American Legion, helping veterans. Monies raised by the Post under this initiative are used to support veterans in need in our community. Rayson-Miller Post 899 raises funds for its community youth programs and felt that this initiative to assist our veterans should also be made a formal program of Post 899.
Every year starting the month of May you will see our Post members at various locations offering poppies and US Flags, or you might see a poppy canister at a local retail store where you can take a poppy or flag and if you choose, make a donation. The monies collected for the poppies must go to assisting veterans and cannot be used by the Post internally. So please, show your appreciation of our fallen by wearing that poppy on National Poppy Day, which is the Friday before Memorial Day each year.
This year, 2019, you will see our Poppy Tables setup at the Pittsford Farm Dairy & Bakery, as well as, Power's Farm Market. Pittsford Dairy will be manned when we have volunteers to do so. Please note, that we will only have the Poppy Table setup at Power's Farm Market on the weekends for the month of May.
We have also placed Poppy Canisters at locations throughout Pittsford and a few in Bushnell's Basin. We thank these establishments for their support.
Please show your support.
