Students pay respects to Charlton Veterans

Over Memorial Day weekend, O’Rourke Middle School teachers Kevin Ahern and Monica Hills took nearly 50 students to visit three cemeteries in Charlton (Jeremiah Smith, Scotch Church in West Charlton, and Sweetman Cemetery) to voluntarily place new flags on the graves of Charlton Veterans. The teachers organized the event with Charlton Town Historian Marv Livingston who also gave a presentation to the students about the three veterans who were being honored.
