Add Your Local Hero To A Special Tree At Nappanee Centerby Jessica Flores on November 3, 2015
Nappanee, Ind. -- In honor of Indiana Veterans and to help increase awareness of the sacrifices made by service members and their families, the Nappanee Center is decorating a special tree this holiday season with the help of local residents.
Community members are invited to create their own handmade ornaments honoring service members from past and present wars, conflicts and peacetime operations. These ornaments are then placed on a tree decorated with white lights and patriotic trim. Stories about individual service members can also be submitted and displayed in a binder near the tree. The Tree of Honor at the Nappanee Center will be on display November eleventh through the holiday season.
Those who wish to contribute their own special ornament or photo (to be copied and incorporated into an ornament) may send or hand-deliver items to the Nappanee Center at 302 W. Market St., Nappanee, IN 46550. For more information, call (574) 773-7812, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
