WOODVILLE, WI – In Flanders fields the poppies blow between the crosses, row on row that mark our place; and in the sky the larks, still bravely singing, fly scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago we lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, loved and were loved, and now we lie in Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe: to you from falling hands we throw the tourch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die we shall not sleep, though poppies grow in Flanders fields.
–John McCrae (1872-1918)
Wear your poppy proudly and support those veterans who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom:
