The graves of deceased Veterans at the Evergreen Cemetery in Houlton are embellished with special wreaths just in time for Veterans Day, with red white and blue ribbon around each one to honor each and every Veteran in the cemetery.
Erin Johnson, Owner of Daniel’s Florist said, “Veterans Day comes around once a year but we need to remember them every day of the year they do so much for us.”
Over 80 wreaths donated from Daniel’s Florist were placed on the crosses of deceased veterans at the Evergreen Cemetery; Veterans that all had ties in the County.
Volunteer Ethan Sawyer said, “They deserve a lot for what they did, it takes a lot of courage to go over there knowing that something could happen any day.”
It’s a generous gesture and donation: $1,200 dollars worth of wreaths from Daniel’s Florist of Houlton.
Erin Johnson, Owner of Daniel’s Florist said, “We had a lady that came in earlier when she found out her father had just passed away and he was a veteran and she said he’d be very moved.”
Volunteers placed the special wreaths upon deceased heroes as a way of paying tribute to those who have sacrificed for our country.
Donated wreaths from Daniel’s Florist were also placed on the graves of Veterans in the Soldier Cemetery as well; 106 wreaths were donated in total between both the Solider Cemetery and Evergreen Cemetery.
