Homer Glen Junior Woman's Club wants to communicate a huge THANK YOU to all of the veterans in our families, our community, and our country. This December, the women of HGJWC will be joining hundreds of other volunteers to lay the wreaths on the graves of the soldiers at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery. It's a beautiful and moving event, and we'd love to see each and every grave receive a wreath.
