Sunday, November 12, 2017, 3:00 - 4:00 p.m.

Join us in the Appleton Auditorium this Veteran's Day weekend for a screening of "Poppy Lady," a documentary by Atlanta Interfaith Broadcasters about the life of local educator Moina Belle Michael (1869-1944.) Born in Good Hope, Ga., Moina Michael established the poppy as a universal symbol of tribute and support for veterans during the First World War. DeLois Gainey from the Elijah Clarke Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (of which Moina was a member) will be joining us to discuss Ms. Michael's legacy and how the DAR continues to support the causes of American veterans.
