Wreaths Across Newport

VFW Post 11191 of Newport will be conducting a wreath
placing here in Newport on December15th, 2018 at 10:00 am.

The laying will take place at the North Newport cemetary
located at the intersection of the Mullen, Pratt and
Rutledge Roads on Rt 222 in Newport.

We will be marking the graves ahead of time so as to save time and energy. This will take place on the 8th
of December 2018 at 9:00 am. The laying of the flags
will take all the help in doing so. The community's
help would be appreciated.

As it stands now , we are in hopes to have the JROTC
make the wreaths under the supervision of Melissa Coppa
at Nokomis Regional High School. They will be making 75 wreaths.

Come all out to see Newport's community come together
for the first ever such laying of the wreaths on the graves of the community's unsung heroes.

We have notified the local TV and Radio stations to
attend.

The community's help would be welcomed. If interested call Camille Derosier at 368-5006 or 907-0934.

We are in hopes that this goes well so that we can do it again next year at a different cemetary.
