Whitewater Cemetery Veterans Graves to be Decorated With Wreaths
Veterans graves at the historic Whitewater Cemetery will once again be decorated with the beautiful Wreaths Across America wreaths.
Have you visited the Whitewater Cemetery? It's a remarkable place to see. There are 13 veterans laid to rest at this cemetery. Four of those are Civil War veterans. Two were Confederate soldiers, and the other two were Union soldiers. According to Sue Chapman with the Whitewater Cemetery Association, all four settled in the Grand Valley in the early 1800s.
Thanks once again to the VFW Post 4663, all 13 veterans final resting place will be honored with a beautiful live green wreath.
Members of the Whitewater Cemetery Association will meet at 11:00 PM at the cemetery and have the honor of placing the 13 wreaths on Saturday, December 15.
