The Phelan Veterans of Foreign Wars #9415 semi-annual Poppy Distribution will be on November 6th, 7th, and 8th, Friday, Saturday and Sunday in front of Stater Bros in Phelan.  The poppy is a symbol of the sacrifices our military have made.  Have you wondered why the VFW Auxiliary does this?  And why the poppy is a symbol of the sacrifices our military have made?

“In Flanders Fields” is a war poem in the form of a rondeau, written during the First World War by Canadian physician Lt. Col. John McCrae.  He was inspired to write it on May 3, 1915, after presiding over the funeral of friend and fellow soldier Alexis Helmer, who died during the Second Battle of Ypres in Belgium.  The poppy became a symbol of the sacrifice of lives in war and represented the hope that none had died in vain.
