Military Appreciation Day at Apple Hill Farm ~ October 5, 2014

Due to the generosity of Chuck and Diane Souther and the Apple Hill Family, Military Appreciation Day 2014 at Apple Hill Farm has been scheduled for Sunday, October 5, 2014 from noon to 4:00PM. As in the past, there will be free apple picking, face painting, pumpkin painting, apple crisp with ice cream, and lots of other activities. Best of all, the day is FREE to Military Members, including Retirees, and their families. Don't forget your military ID, it's your ticket into the event.

Parents of military members are also welcome. Contact Karen Thurston at our Blue Star Mothers table to register.

Apple Hill Farm is located at 580 Mountain Road, Concord, NH. Take Exit 17 off Route 93 from either the north or the south (same exit as the Veterans Cemetery), and follow the signs to Apple Hill Farm.

The Souther Family is looking forward to seeing all of you again this year.

Wreaths for Boscawen at the
NH Veterans Cemetery

We will be laying 1,500 wreaths at the NH Veterans Cemetery

This is an idea that started with a Gold Star Family in 2007 and was inspired by the wreaths placed at Arlington National Cemetery (Worcester Wreath Company) the Blue Star Mothers decided we needed to answer this Christmas wish.
