More than 100 members of the Grove City community gathered at Concord Cemetery on Dec. 18 to participate in Wreaths Across America, a nationwide commemorative event whose mission is to remember this country’s fallen veterans, honor those who serve, and teach the next generation the value of freedom. Among those who laid wreaths at the graves of deceased veterans were members of the NJROTC program at Central Crossing High School.
