During its regular meeting on May 18, the Granville County Veterans’ Affairs Committee recognized Gracie Lundswall of Creedmoor, a sixth-grade student at Falls Lake Academy, for her five years of volunteerism with the national Wreaths Across America program. Gracie represented Granville County and the state of North Carolina through her work at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C. to honor her grandfather and others who have served in the U.S. armed forces. She exemplifies the motto of Wreaths Across America: to remember fallen veterans; to honor those who serve; and to teach others the value of freedom. Gracie received a certificate of appreciation, a challenge coin, and a statute of an American bald eagle from committee chairman Michael Turner, right.
