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, 2020, you will not see our Poppy Tables setup at the Pittsford Farm Dairy & Bakery or Power's Farm Market, or our canisters out at our participating restaurants or shops. Because of the Covid-19 virus and social distancing protocols, we are having to try and offer a digital poppy to those who donate. We understand that everyone is struggling with this 'new world' of how and where we can do our shopping, and a night out is now a 'no-contact' restaurant delivery. But it also means that our veterans in that are in need are typically struggling more than before the Covid-19. So please if you are able, please donate to our 2020 Virtual Poppy Drive. ~Thank You
If the present restrictions are slowly lifted and we are able, we may have social distancing tables at Powers Farm market. We will keep you up to date on this possibility.
Please show your support.
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.
