BUDDY POPPY DAYS – May 26 through May 30
As Memorial Day approaches, it is time to plan for Buddy Poppy Days. We will collect from Wednesday, May 26 through Sunday, May 30. This annual fund raiser is one of our largest and its success depends on the participation of members of Post 3863 and our Auxiliary, as well as families and friends.
As was done in November:
- Masks must be worn!
- Touchless poppy distribution – poppies will be poked onto Styrofoam sheets and people will grab one themselves
- People can send us checks or contribute electronically via link to our bank.
- Stop by the conference room next to the bar to pick up a collection jug, a Styrofoam sheet, an instruction sheet, and ONE bag of poppies for each two-hour shift.
- Give your collections to the bartender and put the jug and left over poppies back in the conference room.
The collection locations for this year are as follows: Casey’s, Trader Joe’s, Caputo’s, Douglas Ace Hardware, Walgreens – Mainstreet – downtown Naperville, Walgreens at Ogden and Raymond/River Roads, Starbucks at Jefferson and Main, Culver’s at Naper and Ogden, Hugo’s and all of Water Street by the hotel and Naperville Township offices. Douglas Ace Hardware and Water Street will only be for Friday through Sunday. Casey’s will only be available for general membership sign-up on Wednesday and Thursday.
We will only use electronic signups this year. The signup sheet can be accessed at: https://volunteersignup.org/CPAMA. Go to this link and scroll through the list of locations, days and times. The “open” column shows how many people are needed for that slot. The first name of the current volunteer will also be listed under the location identifier. When signing up we need your name, telephone number and email address. If someone needs to have Bob Colby at email@example.com or Nancy Marinello at firstname.lastname@example.org do the entry online, please let them know.
