Crosses mark Re­mem­brance

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM -

Afew mem­bers of the Stanstead Le­gion vis­ited six lo­cal ceme­ter­ies on Satur­day, and it had noth­ing to do with Hal­loween. Stanstead Le­gion pres­i­dent Larry Cuer­rier, his son Nathan, and Le­gion mem­bers Cathy and Dougie Parker spent Satur­day morn­ing plant­ing around one hun­dred and thirty lit­tle white crosses on the graves of lo­cal eter­ans. The ceme­ter­ies where the crosses were placed were Ap­ple Grove, Beebe Plains, Crys­tal Lake, Grif­fin, St. Mary’s and Wood­side. If any­one knows of a eteran who has been buried in a lo­cal ceme­tery and they would like to have a cross placed at the gravesite can call the Stanstead Le­gion ( 1 76-5 44) and make a re­quest.
