Poppy Day honors veterans

To the editor:
The people of Tryon showed so much generosity on Poppy Day.
All the money collected goes to veterans – the VA hospital in Asheville, the Wounded Warrior project, the Help Hospitalized Vets and, of course, local veterans.
It does distress me that there are too many people who have no interest in giving to veterans – the men and women who have made many sacrifices for them and our country, even giving their lives.
Poppy Day is always the Friday before Memorial Day. We, also appreciate the businesses who allow us to distribute the the poppies by their buildings.
