Smiley face

The annual posthumous recognition for veterans of all wars was held in cemeteries across the nation on Saturday December 19, 2020. This year, five Hopkins County cemeteries took part in the solemn event. They are Sulphur Springs City Cemetery, Black Oak Cemetery. Pickton Cemetery, Greenview Cemetery and Gafford’s Chapel Cemetery. Almost 900 wreaths were placed in City Cemetery alone! Many local volunteers came together and made the event a memorable experience. Here are photos from activity at Sulphur Springs City Cemetery.

Dena Loyd is the WAA organizer for the Sulphur Springs City Cemetery, and initiated the local tradition in 2018.
