We all owe our veterans a debt larger than we will likely be able to pay back in our lifetimes. Enjoying the freedoms and benefits of living in a great country like the United States came at a price which many of our veterans have paid for us. The Sacred Heart Knights of Columbus council frequently recognizes the sacrifices of our veterans.
The Sacred Heart Council is donating funds to the Ottawa-North Kent Blue Star Mothers of America MI-194. This group is trying to purchase wreaths for every veteran’s grave at the Grand Rapids Home Veterans cemetery by this Christmas. If you would like to donate to this cause, please see the attached donation form. Every little bit gets us closer to honoring all the veterans laid to rest in this cemetery.
The Blue Start Mothers have met their goal and will be placing a wreath on every grave in 2017.
On Saturday, December 18th 2016 the Blue Start Mothers laid over 4200 wreaths on grave at the Grand Rapids Home Veterans cemetery. Check out the news story about this great initiative.
