CJH 6th graders sing for Wreaths Across America


C.J. Hooker Middle School’s 6th graders sang for the Wreaths Across America procession on Wednesday, Dec. 13, as drivers stopped in Goshen to lay wreaths at the Orange County Veterans Memorial Cemetery on their way from Maine to Arlington National Cemetery.

With CJH Teacher Patty Capocciamo, the students thanked veterans for their service, and presented flowers and a gift bag of Goshen gear to the father and son drivers, Ervin Henschel Jr. and Ervin Henschel Sr. They also offered a box of dog biscuits to Stanley, the Bernese mountain dog accompanying them on their adventure.

In addition to the gifts, the National Junior Honor Society donated 15 wreaths to the cause, which were laid at the Orange County Veterans Memorial Cemetery.
