The Batavia American Legion Post 504 would like to thank all the patrons who gave last year.
Our Spring Poppy / Community Day Drive helps us support both our Batavia Community
programs and Poppy Veterans Emergency fund program using these donations.
We use a percentage of the 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 and a check presented in June.
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 apply
online and ask us to sponsor them. This always depends on how much money was collected.
The remaining percentage of the monies are used to replenish the Emergency fund used to
support any Post veteran who contacts us in need of some financial hardship assistance.
Boys State was held in 2022 and collections made this year for 2023 will be available in June to
Juniors who want to attend. Girls State had no canidates for 2022. We sponsored 4 boys in 2022.
