Hocking Valley Chapter SAR at Wreaths Across America in Granville, Ohio
On December 12th, 2015, the Hocking Valley Chapter SAR was honored to participate in the Wreaths Across America Ceremony in Granville, OH at the Opera House Park. The Hocking Valley Color Guard, including members Dave Nessley, Robert Davis, Robert Hill, and Jeff Walt, stood guard as Compatriot Tom Hankins placed a ceremonial wreath alongside those placed by U.S. Military servicemen and women.
The event was sponsored by the Granville Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and included the Hon. Melissa Hartfield, Mayor of the Village of Granville; the Granville High School Marching Band; and local Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops.
There was a good turn out for the ceremony in honor of those who served.
