Saturday morning, January 24, was a beautiful Colorado morning, crisp and sunny. Our Generations of Compassion volunteers met the day ready to support the clean-up of holiday wreaths and other decorations from the Ft. Logan National Cemetery.
The annual clean-up of the holiday wreaths and decorations normally takes groundskeepers at Fort Logan National Cemetery more than a week to accomplish. GCF teamed up with volunteers from several other organizations to complete the clean-up much faster.
Our volunteer time spent cleaning up the cemetery was made more special with the opportunity to honor the burial site of the brother of one of our volunteers. It was truly a special day for all our volunteers and a very special way for Generations of Compassion to say ‘Thank You’ to all our veterans and their families for their service and dedication to our country.
Volunteers: Becky Snethen, Jim Snethen, Caleb Snethen, Renee Iantorno, Maryellen LanFranco, Yasuko Armstead, and Connie Pontarelli.
