The Greens have been hung at The DeGlopper Memorial that honor all Grand Island residents, past, present, and future, who have proudly served the US as a member of the military.  For a second year, the Rotary Club of Grand Island has placed wreaths at the memorial.  This year we were able to expand to place wreaths at each of the new stands placed this past year as part of the final phase of the project.  
From Elsie Martino, DeGlopper Memorial Expansion Committee
On behalf of the DeGlopper Memorial Expansion Committee, I am writing to express our gratitude and appreciation to the Rotary Club of Grand Island for coordinating the effort to place Christmas wreaths at each of the KIA stands at the DeGlopper Memorial site on December 2, 2023. The kindness and
generosity of these volunteers make a difference. A special thanks to Rotarians Diane and John Garey, club president Sherry Miller, Donna Wilde, and Faye Teluk, who bought and set up the wreaths. Also, to Jude Kuehne, who created the decorative ribbons for each wreath. The unsolicited efforts of these volunteers are a gesture of respect and honor and a touching tribute to those brave soldiers who served and sacrificed their lives for our freedom.
The volunteers showed a remarkable spirit of patriotism and community service as we began the holiday
season. Their dedication and compassion move us.
