      Lovely prize. Nitpicking alert: No apostrophe is needed in the title of this poem; it should read 'In Flanders Fields' as there is no such place as 'Flander'. Sorry!

      Georgetown, TX does an annual Poppy Festival honoring those who have given their lives on foreign soil. The original red poppies planted around town came from Flanders Field. This was a great question for the Memorial Day week.
