    Our Spring Poppy Day / Community Drive helps us support our Batavia Community student

programs and Veterans in need thru Poppy donations. We use money collected to support the

Stanley Johnson Scholarships for the Batavia Seniors who submit an application detailing why

they want to pursue a nursing program. Winner(s) are given a Certificate at the Batavia High

School yearly May Senior Honors and Recognition presentation at the school.

    We also support the American Legion Boys State and Girls State programs for Juniors from

both Batavia H.S. and Marmion. We try to sponsor 2-3 students from each program who fill out an

application and ask us to sponsor them. This depends on how much money is collected.

    The remaining monies are set aside to be used to support any Post veteran who contacts us

and is in need of some financial assistance because of a hardship they themselves might be having.

     Boys State was cancelled in 2021 but collection made this year for 2022 will be available in June to both

 Juniors and Seniors who want to attend. Girls State had no canidates for 2022 juniors. We sponsored 3 boys.
