Windham cemeteries get new GAR markers thanks to fifth-grade class

Sabrina Nickerson's fifth-grade class sits with Field-Allen Post Commander Melvin Greenier and Vice Commander Karle Learned. Melvin and Karle were in the classroom to discuss the significance of the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR). Kaila Mank (center) is holding a GAR cemetery marker. The class has been collecting donations on behalf of the American Legion to support the purchase of replacement GAR markers in the cemeteries in Windham. The class collected over $450 for this purpose and presented the donation to Commander Greenier during Community Day held last week. A total of 58 markers will be replaced this spring during Memorial Day events. Photo by Sabrina Nickerson.
