HACKENSACK — The Hackensack American Legion Auxiliary will distribute poppies to Hackensack businesses Friday and Saturday, May 13-14.

May is Poppy Month, and red poppies are worn to commemorate the sacrifice of men and women who gave their lives fighting for their country. The auxiliary requests that people wear a poppy in memory of U.S. veterans.

Those who wish to donate to the Auxiliary Unit 202 poppy fund to support veterans can leave a check payable to Unit 202 Poppy Fund at the Legion Post or mail it to P.O. Box 414, Hackensack, MN 56452.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Pineandlakes Echo Journal." Often, the "Pineandlakes Echo Journal" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
