Wreaths Across America Honors Veterans
Holliston High School junior Taryn Holmes, last month organized a National Honor Society project.
She partnered with the Jason Russell Society of the Children of the American Revolution, the Old Middlesex Chapter Sons of the American Revolution, and the Mt. Hollis Masonic Lodge to honor Holliston veterans.
Each year, millions of Americans come together to remember the fallen, honor those that serve and their families, and teach the next generation about the value of freedom.
This gathering of volunteers and patriots takes place in local and national cemeteries in all 50 states - most recently at more than 3,100 participating locations - as part of National Wreaths Across America Day.
Each year, a new theme is chosen to help volunteers and supporters focus their messaging and outreach in their own communities. The theme for 2022 was “Find a way to serve.”
On Dec. 17, Holmes hosted a Wreaths Across America event in Holliston at the Lake Grove Cemetery.
There are roughly 600 veteran graves in this cemetery.
The event to honor the towns veterans was a success.
