Community Members Honor Deceased Veterans

NEWPORT CITY – It’s Christmas time. In the tradition of giving, over the weekend dozens of area residents placed wreathes - close to 1,400 in all - on the graves of veterans buried in local cemeteries.
Robert Gosselin, owner of Spates the Florist and Garden Center, organized the annual Veterans Memorial Wreath Campaign, now in its fifth year.
“We are honoring our war heroes on their gravestones throughout the county,” said Gosselin. “We like to give back to the community, this is one of the largest projects we do.”
The campaign included community members and organizations. Gosselin paid for 800 wreathes. Individual sponsors, corporate sponsors and group sponsors paid for the remaining wreathes. Even with that, nearly 800 headstones will go without a wreath, unless someone from the community decides to buy one for a veteran and place it there him or herself. For anyone who wants to do that, Gosselin said, he would dress it the same as the others.
Roger Cartee started the campaign five years ago with his DECA students. The Newport Rotary Club took it over for one year when Cartee retired three years ago.
