Wreaths Honor Veterans in Pontotoc County

FROM THE PONTOTOC PROGRESS

The Gold Star Mothers will once again be accepting sponsorships for wreaths to be placed on our veterans’ graves in Pontotoc County.

The cost is still the same: $15 for one, or three for $30.

If you would like to purchase a wreath for your special veteran, please contact one of the following: Donna Bagwell, 419-0441; Jill Self, 419-2089; or Pat Mounce, 488-1443.

Mounce said the deadline to purchase the wreaths is November 21.

“We will need the veteran’s name and the name of the cemetery,” Mounce said.

“You can also leave your information and check at the Pontotoc Progress newspaper,” she added.

“Please support ‘Wreaths Across America.’ What better way to say thank you?”
