HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – Friends of the Agawam Veterans Cemetery held an event at the Holyoke Mall to support local veterans.
The event was held from 10 a.m. through 4 p.m. to help the Wreaths Across America program. The campaign is focused on placing a wreath on a headstone of veterans in the Massachusetts Veterans Memorial Cemetery on Main Street in Agawam.
The cemetery is currently 4,200 wreaths short of its goal.
“The wreaths across America at the cemetery somewhere around 2012 I understand at that time they sold maybe 200 wreaths, at this time last year, they sold 10,000,” said Paul Barabani.
