The Lufkin local VFW Post 1836 is putting together a big event and kickoff to their largest fundraiser. This fundraiser's proceeds go directly to veteran assistance programs in our area.

The Buddy Poppy Extravaganza Fundraiser & Campaign kickoff celebration for Angelina County will be held at the VFW post at 1800 Ford Chapel Road in Lufkin, Texas.

No one does more for veterans in our area than the VFW. Be a part of this and know that you are helping veterans in your community.

Why Do They Distribute Red Buddy Poppy Flowers In Lufkin, Texas? 

In the days leading up to Memorial Day, our local VFW post along with VFW posts all across the nation, distribute the red Buddy Poppy flowers. They remind us of the sacrifices that paid for the freedoms we enjoy today.

Recent world events make these heroic actions of the past seem even more real. Hopefully it will inspire you to make a donation during this time.
