Helping the Guardians of the National Cemetery Help Needy Veterans

With the deepest thanks to many generous donors, the Club was able to present Bob Craven, president of the Guardians

of the National Cemetery in Washington Crossing, PA

with a check for $400.00 to allow them to provide holiday meals to needy veterans.

Sadly, the COVIDD-19 pandemic has precluded the nation’s National Cemeteries from continuing with their annual Wreaths Across America

programs of placing wreaths on every fallen veteran’s grave, a ceremony in which many of our members have participated in the past.  However, a scaled-down observance was evident with a giant wreath being placed before each section of graves,

while scaaattered wreaths placed by the families of loved ones interred at the cemetery were in evidence.
