The Poppy is the official Memorial Day Flower. Poppies grew in abundance in the battlefields of Belgium during World War I. It bewildered some as to how the flowers could grow in such a landscape. It was determined that the overturned soils of battle covered them and created a growth environment. Some feel it was a reminder of the blood that was shed during that and future wars. During this time, 1915, before the US entered WW1, “In Flanders Fields” was written by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae of the Canadian forces.
“In Flanders Fields“
In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.

Although we were in the middle of a Heatwave, the VA IMH team and their families had a great time at the Annual Summer Event on July 23, 2011. Carnival Games, Bounce House, Bungee Race, Face Painting and Plenty of Food kept the attention of the 200 plus person event. While the most popular items may have been the misting fans and tents, a good time was had by all.
