Mayor Jones Asks
City to Observe
Poppy Day Saturday
Saturday, May 22, was designat
ed as Poppy Day in Heppner by a
proclamation issued today by Ma
yor Jeff Jones. In the proclama
tion, Mayor Jones called upon all
citizens to observe the day by
wearing memorial poppies in hon
or of the World War dead. The
"The city of Heppner responded
with highest patriotism to our na
tion's call for defenders in 1917
and 1918, sending many of its
young men into the fighting forces.
"It is fitting that the service and
sacrifice of these gallant young
men should be commemorated an
nually by appropriate public ob
servance. As the poppy, which
grew on the battlefields where so
many men fell, has become their
memorial flower, there could be
no more appropriate observance
than a general wearing of the pop
py in their honor.
"Therefore, I do hereby pro
claim Saturday, May 22, as Poppy
Day in the City of Heppner, and
urge all citizens to show remem
brance of the honor for the men
of the city and of the nation who
gave their lives in World War ser
vice by wearing poppies on that

distribute poppies throughout the

butions for the welfare of the liv

abled veterans, the widows and
