Wreaths Across America - December 14, 2019

Members of the John Hanson Chapter along with Maryland Society President James Perry attended the Wreaths Across American at Cheltenham Veteran’s Cemetery on Saturday, December 14, 2019.  The John Hanson Chapter provides the Location Coordinator to support the effort at the Cheltenham Veterans Cemetery which, has become a year round effort.  The Cemetery has 28,000+ graves and gets its wreaths solely through sponsorships through Wreaths Across America and local organizations.  A volunteer staff headed up by John Hanson Chapter’s Compatriot George Satterthwaite with 6 other dedicated folks from the community.  Today, it was estimated, that the volunteers laid some 14,000 wreaths.  We wanted to give thanks to all of the volunteers, members of the local high school JROTC programs, Civil Air Patrol and Scouting organizations for their assistance.
