The town of Good Hope, Georgia recently hosted a Poppy Festival to honor the “Poppy Lady”, Moina Michael, who was born there in 1869. Inspired by John McCrae’s battlefront-theme poem “In Flanders Fields” Ms. Michael conceived the idea of using poppies as a symbol of remembrance for those who served in World War I. In 1921 the American Legion Auxiliary adopted the poppy as a symbol of remembrance for war veterans.
John Clarke Chapter members Pauline Myers and Teresa Thompson participated in the festivities and enjoyed sharing information about NSDAR to visitors.
