VETERANS' DAY
AT MOUNT HOPE CEMETERY

Yesterday's frigid weather did not deter Cadette Girl Scouts from Brighton from paying tribute to our veterans at Mt. Hope.  They put flags on all the veterans in the World War I plot, and then proceeded to flag veterans in the World War II and Spanish American War plots as well.  Participating were 13 girls from troops 60124 and 60064.


After that they went to the grave of David Hochstein's parents to put a flag by their gravestone.  Many of the girls were taking lessons at the Hochstein Music School, and they were touched to hear the story of David Hochstein's life as a music prodigy and his tragic death on the battlefield in World War I.

Girls, the Friends of Mount Hope thank you.  What a patriotic service project!  We are proud of your good work.
