Wreaths-Out January 16, 2024

And as always, thanks to the crew at the Massachusetts Veterans Memorial Cemetery at Agawam!

Brooms, rakes, car snow brushes, all make good wreath collectors!






Thanks to the family who spent their snow day helping out at the cemetery!





















Thanks to the group from American Legion Granby Post 266, and Auxiliary Unit 266:
