Once again, the Monroe Winners 4-H Club participated in Wreaths Across America, raising funds to place wreaths at Plumwood Cemetery in honor of military veterans.
Placing wreaths for each of the branches of the U.S. military were: (in top photo, from left) Richard Reiselt, who served in the Army, Army wreath; Madelyne Bartoe, Marine Corps wreath; Kamber Mitchell, Navy wreath; Jill Reiselt, who served in the Air Force, Air Force wreath; Charlie Hall, Space Force wreath; Korrine Mitchell, Coast Guard wreath; Kora Mitchell, Merchant Marines wreath; and Wendy Hall, club advisor, POW/MIA (wreath placed by Rena Kirts).
The 4-H club’s goal is to place wreaths at the more than 155 veterans’ graves at the cemetery. To support this effort, visit www.wreathsacrossamerica.org, click the local sponsorship group button, and enter the club’s code (OH0295). The club will receive matching donations through Jan. 14.
