Description:
 This year begins the centennial of World War I and The Office of Historic Alexandria has a "Poppy Project" to honor our veterans by inviting the public to sew or crochet red poppies 2-4 inches in diameter and drop them off at boxes at the Alexandria Library. On Veterans Day from 2:30-4:30 the Barrett Branch will provide materials and patterns for you to drop in and make poppies to donate. The poppies will be used in a community art project for the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day. If you can't attend on Veteran's Day feel free to drop off your handmade poppies at the designated box in the library. For more information call 703-746-1721.
