By David Potter
Hendry County Coordinator, Wreaths Across America
We have completed our Wreaths Across America ceremony and wreath laying event in Hendry County.
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the support and help we received.
We laid 1,071 wreaths at seven cemeteries. With your donations and help, we were able to remember, honor and teach along with pay our respects to the veterans.
I especially would like to say thank you to H.E. Hill Foundation, First Bank, America Legion Post #130, Roland Martin’s Marina, Berner Oil, Pottsco Industrial Services, Skydive Spaceland Clewiston, Cross Training Ministries and U.S. Sugar.
We would have not been able to complete this event without the help of my family, Cynthia, Jordan, Ryan and Jade, along with Myra Johnson and Hendry County Commissioner Ramon Iglesias. Thank you to everyone and the local businesses in Hendry County for your support.
