Last week's actions
Last week we heard from Andrew Lowery about an organization Called Wreaths Across America. There are at least 150 veterans buried in the Melissa Cemetery. The local Wreath Across America places wreaths on those graves. We discuss the idea of supporting the effort this coming December both before and after. We always discussed investigating the Historical Black Cemetery adjacent to the Melissa Cemetery to see if we can aid in its upkeep.
