Members VFW Post 1617, American Legion Post 9 and Boys Scout Troops 98, 402 and 405 placed over 70 wreaths at the markers of veterans at Forest Hill Cemetery in Derry on Saturday, Dec. 17, during a Wreaths Across America ceremony. Despite the threat of cancellation due to an overnight snowstorm over two dozen volunteers participated in the event nation-wide. Town Councilor Charlie Foote and U.S. Congressman Chris Pappas also took part in laying wreaths on what was a rather brisk morning. Photo by Chris Paul
