Wreaths Across America

Members of the Abingdon Ruritan Club took part in an event on Dec. 18 honoring those who have served our country. The annual wreath-laying ceremony for National Wreaths Across America Day was held at the Hampton National Ceremony. Wreaths were placed on the headstones of the veterans as a way to remember and honor them. Hampton is one of more than 2,700 Wreaths Across America locations across the country when the service was held. Taking part from the Abingdon Ruritans were, from left, John and Jeannie Pendegraft, Mary Lou Shepherd, Frank and Kathleen Gillerlain, Mike Ekdahl, Dave Kyle, Don Sciria and Roger Dick.
