This wreath came about after experiencing sticker shock at a local craft store. Holiday wreaths were going for 50 bucks a pop. I had only set aside $25 in my budget for such a wreath. I could not justify shelling out another $25. Well, when you can't buy it, make it. I might have spent $15 on the goods. A garland of twigs, floral wire and ribbon worked for me. The process took a little more than an hour. I ended up with something simple, beautiful and easily repurposed for next year.

A couple of years ago, in a weak moment, I vowed to never again host a holiday open house at my historic home. Getting ready for the tour, which was held during my busiest season at work, was giving me gray hairs. But in those quiet years off, I discovered something surprising: I couldn't stand it. I missed the fun and excitement of reinventing my home for the holidays, then opening my doors to new and old friends who traveled from all over the country to kick off the holiday season with us. Gray hairs or not, I wanted to resume the tradition.

Bells tolled and bugles sounded at Hagerstown City Park Tuesday evening as the community paused to remember emergency personnel and those in the armed forces who lost their lives in the line of duty. Some stopped to reminisce in front of the 9/11 memorial at the park about the day 12 years ago, a beautiful late summer day not unlike Tuesday, when two planes flew into the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon was attacked, and passengers fought with hijackers as they brought down an airliner near Shanksville, Pa. Remembrance in the Park was a tribute to lost lives, at war and at home, to terrorist attacks and other emergencies.

In describing the life of many military members, 1st Sgt. Starlene Hamilton started by reminding the crowd at Boonsboro's Memorial Day ceremony that often those servicemen and servicewomen began their military careers as recent high school graduates. They were probably student-athletes and had a high school sweetheart who either broke up with them when they left or swore would wait for them when they returned, said Hamilton, 49, of Williamsport. While they love music, they also love “the sound and smell of a 16-inch round when it leaves the chamber, especially when it hits black on a target 500 yards away,” she said.

As taps echoed from a bugle, the wind picked up Tuesday morning and snapped American flags hanging above Letterkenny Army Depot’s headquarters. The depot hosted “Wreaths Across America” on Tuesday, the 69th anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. A convoy of tractor-trailers delivered two wreaths to honor fallen members of the military. In saying a prayer for the wreaths and those who had gathered in the frigid cold, the Rev. William Harter said the greens of the wreaths represent life eternal and their circles are not broken.
