At our February meeting Eliot Elementary teacher, Ann Shapleigh-Shisler, talked with us about the student and school involvement with Wreaths Across America, which lead to the hosting last December of their caravan as it passed through Maine and on to Arlington National Cemetery. She shared with us a number of videos and pictures, making for a very interesting and informative program.
