Local group wants to bring 'Wreaths Across America' to Sullivan
Wreaths Across America is a nationwide organization, but a local group
is trying to bring it to Sullivan County.
Quaid Tresise, a local project coordinator, says there are 1,300
veterans buried at Center Ridge Cemetery in Sullivan.
The group's goal is to lay wreaths on each military grave on Dec. 18
of this year and needs to raise $15,000. Tresise says this is a way to
honor those who paid the ultimate price.
"Well, I'm a veteran myself so it means a lot to me to be able to help
the other veterans. There's probably a lot of veterans out here who
haven't been visited in a long time," Tresise told WTHI-TV recently.
The group plans to meet at 6 p.m. tonight in the back meeting room at
Backstreet Pizza. the meeting had originally been scheduled for Feb.
16 but was postponed due to the major snow storm.
