BARK RIVER — May is Poppy Month. Poppies symbolize the sacrifice of U.S. service members killed while protecting our country. We wear the flower to honor those fallen heroes and in support of our military, veterans, and their families.

The American Legion Auxiliary members have placed canisters or are personally out in their communities seeking donations, which directly support service members, veterans and their families.

To bring awareness to this time of year, the American Legion Auxiliary of Rheaume-Knauf Post 438 in Bark River held a Poppy Poster Contest for Mrs. Stenberg’s 7th and 8th grade junior high art class at the Bark River-Harris School. The winners were first place, Hazel Konklin; second place, Ethan Ives; third place, Ben Shiverski.

All the posters are on display at various locations within the Bark River community.
