Thank you so very much to 160+ volunteers that showed up in the cold rain (sheets of rain!) to place 2600 wreaths on the graves of our fallen patriots. There were smiles of gratitude. There is more to do, we have another 500 more wreaths to procur and place but enjoy these great pictures from our friend Shawn St.Hilaire!
It was a fantastic day and thank you to Congressman Chris Pappas who came quietly and anonymously to help but I recruited to say a few words. Thanks for being a good sport!
A very special thanks to Turbocam International Eversource NH Aroma Joe’s Coffee Lewis Builders Development, Inc. Lynette Rogers and so many people who donated from $5 to $3,000. Every single one of you made it happen. Marga Coulp and Jamie Stevens always go above and beyond. Jonathan Otterson was simply amazing and so dedicated to making this event work. David NK Jester Schuppert and the Live Free or Die Chapter of the Nam Knights are just warriors who never say no to any task especially when it honors our veterans.
A big Thank You to all the volunteers
In Epping that afternoon some amazing friends placed 140 wreaths. Thank to Sean Morrison for requesting we add this cemetery. Our friends G Michael Vose, Gail Huff Janet Lannan Stevens (both in Dover and Epping!), Nancy and Warren Kindler, Kimberly Morin came out to make an impact and honor those veterans.
Chuck Morse and his Freshwater Farms along with Wentworth Greenhouses, Inc. provided all the wreaths at a fantastic price so we could do more with less. Thank you.
“ No amount of words could express my gratitude to Jack Heath and Mike Pomp and all the fantastic friends at Binnie Media Frank FM Radio News Talk 98.1 WTSN. Jack is a gladiator when it comes to helping veterans. He never says no and always pushes my goal line a little further out. Above all, Jack made these last two ceremonies happen.” – Mike Mayberry
Next year, our goal is to provide wreaths for over 3,000 veterans!
