Poppies for a Good Cause in Georgetown, Texas Dozens of volunteers helped “plant” ceramic poppies on the lawn of the Williamson County Courthouse on April 3, 2016. The poppies not only commemorate Texas World War I veterans but are also being sold to raise money to train service dogs for veterans. Faculty from Richland College in Dallas created the ceramic poppies and loaned them to the City of Georgetown. When the Courthouse display ended in May, the poppies were moved to the Georgetown Public Library lawn. The public library is still selling poppies to raise money. (April 2016)
