Sponsored by Julianne Hansen Fine Art & Pottery, the Alabama Poppy Project is a program inspired by the many individuals who have given their lives in service to their country. Around the world, the Poppy has been used as a symbol of remembrance of those who have died while in the service of a country they love.
The Alabama Poppy Project will commemorate and honor those individuals with a handmade ceramic poppy placed on a metal stake that will be placed in a field near Heritage Park in Prattville, Alabama, displayed for one week starting on Sunday, May 30, 2021 through the following Saturday, June 5, 2021.
For just $45, you can sponsor a poppy in the name of a friend or loved one who has served in the armed forces, who is no longer living.
Your poppy will be displayed along with the name of the person whom you are honoring for one week. At the conclusion of the exhibit, you may come pick up your poppy, or choose to donate it back to the event for future use.
Once you have sponsored a poppy, you will be emailed instructions on how to pick up your flower after the event has concluded.
$10 of each poppy is donated to non-profit organizations dedicated to continuing the memory of our fallen loved ones.
"Planting" 1,000 Ceramic Poppies is a huge undertaking, and you can certainly help with the installation, security or break down of the event. Click below to let us know how you would like to help. We will contact you soon to confirm your participation.
