The local Wreaths Across America project was successfully completed on Saturday , December 08. The Honor Guard of Post 558, commanded by Danny Hilyard, conducted ceremonies at 5 cemeteries — Gilmore Township, Surrey Township, Lincoln Township, Cherry Grove and St. Cecelia’s Cemetery. Wreaths were also place at the Freeman Township cemetery. Also participating in the ceremony were Pastor Jim Young (Clare Church of the Nazarene) and Renee Haley (Director of Clare County Veteran’s Services). This honoring of American Veterans could not take place without the support of individuals and groups such as the Clare Eagles.
