The Derry Memorial VFW Post 1617 has been distributing buddy poppies and accepting donations for more than 40 years! The donations go directly to help Veterans in need, their families, widows and orphans, community projects, and citizenship education.
This year, because of Covid-19, we were unable to pass out Buddy Poppies during Memorial and Veterans Day weekends. Needs continue. Please donate to our Post's Poppy Drive?
Before Memorial Day in 1922, The VFW conducted its first poppy distribution, becoming the first Veterans Organization to hold a nationwide distribution. The Poppy soon was adopted as the official flower of the VFW.
Our Campaign will run through December 31st.
We will reveiw geographic location of donations. Our members may give and we must limit our geographic area of NH.
