Jewish War Veterans of America Post 65 under the command of Commander Howard Spaner had their annual Poppy Drive on May 23- 28th. The poppies were at numerous locations throughout the Valley and were distributed by making donations to the different post. Post 65 in Henderson, at their monthly meeting, got everything together so they could set up at different supermarkets with their poppies, and flags. With a donation of 3 dollars or more you would receive a flag and with any other donation receive a poppy. Proceeds of this event goes to help the different veterans’ organizations here in the valley. The Poppy Drive is held twice a year on Memorial week and Veterans Day week.
