Buddy Poppy King Jack Blaney has stayed busy all year with parades, food drives and has passed out poppies at every event he can. He has been to Bass Pro Shop in Concord, Walmart in Locust, Locust Town Hall, the Boston Butt sale at the VFW Post, the Memorial Day food drive and Independence Day Poppy Drive. Even with everything going on, this young man has passed out over 1000 poppies.
He will keep his crown until another king is crowned in February.
