GFWC Women’ Monday Club of the Coastal Bend members hold holiday wreaths that will be used to adorn the gravesites of U.S. military veterans buried at Prairie View Cemetery on Saturday morning, December 18 starting at 10 a.m. They still need your help and are asking the public to donate $15 for a wreath – with no limit on the number you can buy, and to show up and help lay the memorial decoration on any one of 337 graves that hold a service member’s remains. The deadline to purchase wreaths is Monday, November 29. Courtesy: GFWC Women’s Monday Club of the Coastal Bend

Bless a Vet – local Christmas appeal reaches deadline

Store shelves are stocked with Christmas gift ideas, and at least one local radio station has been broadcasting holiday standards the past few weeks. But Marsha Wellman and members of the GFWC Women’s Monday Club of the Coastal Bend remain focused on only one holiday tradition – honoring members of the U.S. Armed Forces whose final resting place is the historic Prairie View Cemetery in Aransas Pass along the Ingleside border.
