PEPPERELL -- Every Memorial Day, many in our community visit local cemeteries to pay respects to those who served in the United States Armed Forces.

This Memorial Day, the Country Florist Flower Shop in Pepperell is participating in the nationwide Memorial Day Flowers program and will set up a stand at Groton Cemetery and Pepperell Cemetery to give out roses to visitors. Each visitor will receive one or two to place on a headstone to honor someone who served.

The Country Florist Flower Shop often supports good causes; however, this one is special, they note, and "we are privileged to participate in honoring the people and families that have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Flowers are a form of emotional expression and a single stem placed on a headstone is an appropriate show of respect."
