On Memorial Poppy Day, the women of American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) Unit 286 Pine Castle met with Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs and presented her with the First Poppy of the Year to honor and remember the courageous men and women of the Armed Forces who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Mayor Jacobs also presented the group with a proclamation recognizing May 21, 2015, as Memorial Poppy Day in tribute to the fallen heroes whose courageous spirit and noble sacrifice will never be forgotten.
Since 1921, the red poppy has served as the nationally-recognized symbol of the selfless sacrifice of the brave men and women of who have lost their lives while protecting the freedoms of this great nation. The tradition traces back to World War I when the poppy was one of the only plants to grow on barren battlefields.
