Sherry Brooks, Auxiliary Post 1142, had a great time dressed as the POPPY LADY at First Baptist Church's Trunk-or-Treat Sunday night. In addition to candy, she gave American flags, patriotic pencils and Buddy Poppy coloring books. Thanks to Dept President Connie Holt for sharing the coloring books to our auxiliary.
