IN THE SEASON OF GIVING, NHS STUDENTS HONORED GREATEST GIVERS


By Danielle Bellettiere, President
MVHS National Honors Society

Braving a blistering cold morning, members of Minisink Valley’s National Honors Society gave their full-hearted participation to a wreath-laying ceremony at Orange County Veterans Memorial Cemetery, on Saturday, Dec. 16.

Sponsored by Wreaths Across America, this annual event brings the community together in the spirit of the season to remember and honor those who gave their lives fighting for our country.

Nine NHS volunteers helped make sure every hero’s grave was graced with a holiday wreath. “It’s such a little thing to give when people have given their lives for us, and it means a great deal knowing that we are showing our gratitude for these heroes,” said one NHS member on behalf of the group.
