KINGSTON — The Kingston Veteran’s Club will be sponsoring a ceremony honoring service men and women with wreaths of remembrance on Sat., December 14 at 12:00 p.m. The Vets Club is a registered sponsor for the four cemeteries here in Kingston and will be honoring servicemen and women the same time as the annual laying of wreaths at Arlington National Cemetery.
Coordinator Jim Voss said, “It gives us a chance to not only remember the club’s founders and celebrate their vision for local returning veterans back in 1946, but also honor some of those fallen veterans right here in town”. Wreaths will be placed first in front of the Club in honor of the club’s founders, then off to honor veterans buried in Greenwood Cemetery on North Road-NHKVCB; Plains Cemetery off of Main Street-NHKVCC; Millstream Cemetery on Route 125 near West Shore Park Road-NHKVCD; and Pine Grove Cemetery on Route 111 adjacent to the Police Station-NHKVCE.
Wreaths will also be placed at the three deceased heroes named on the plains crossroads: Specialist David Bunker; Lieutenant Commander Walter Merrick; and Sergeant John Steer. Requests for wreaths or donations may be made to either of the cemeteries, using the location codes above.
Please help us Remember, Honor, and Teach on Sat., December 14 at 12:00 p.m. by sponsoring a wreath, volunteering on wreath day at the club or the cemetery and inviting friends to help.
If you wish to donate and sponsor a wreath for $15.00, go to Learn about Wreaths Across America's Mission to Remember, Honor and Teach and enter location code NHKVCB, NHKVCC, NHKVCD or NHKVCE. The Kingston Veteran’s Club is located at 36 Church Street, Kingston.
