New Milford Community Poppy Project

The Garden Club of New Milford is sponsoring the "Poppy Project"—a tribute to all those that have served in the armed forces.

Our goal is to display 1000 poppies in front of the All-Veterans Memorial on New Milford Green, Memorial Day 2023 through the following week.

We are asking volunteers to knit or crochet poppies—download a pattern file:

• Knit Poppy - PDF or Word
• Crochet Poppy - PDF or Word

The collection spots will be the mayor's office, Library, Senior Center, and John Pettibone Community Center (Parks & Rec office).
Please spread the word. If you know someone who knits or crochets, please let them know about the project.
The last day for collection will be March 1, 2023.

If you need any assistance or have any questions, please email or call/text Kathi Barringer at 203-770-9542.
