Wreaths Across America service cancelled

Remember. Honor. Teach. The 13th annual Wreath’s Across America ceremony was cancelled due to COVID-19. But that didn’t stop people from decorating their loved one’s graves at Mount Hope Cemetery for Christmas Saturday, December 19, 2020. The ceremony recognizes our service men and women this time of year. Our fallen have taught us the meaning of duty, honor, courage, and commitment. May we remain thankful for the freedoms that we have. More photos are on page 17.

Some of us have and make plans for our lives and it goes just the way we’d like. For others, there can be deviations in that plan.
