Welcome to the KY Poppy Project
As part of the Kentucky WWI Centennial Commemoration we invite you to take part in honoring our heroes by making poppies. This activity is for people of all ages, groups and organizations. Inspired by the 5000 Poppy Project in Australia, this amazing display of remembrance is a great way to involve each of you in honoring our history in WWI. Throughout this site you will find information, links, and ideas about how you can become an official "Poppy Partner."
