MONROE - Poppy Days returns to Monroe today. For more than 90 years, the American Legion Auxiliary has distributed the memorial poppies to remind Americans that millions sacrificed their lives and health to keep this nation strong and free. Zilmer-Riley American Legion Auxiliary Unit 84 members and veterans will distribute the bright red poppies, handmade by veterans who receive payment for each poppy made.
