Veteran’s Christmas Tree Unites Community
ELMHURST TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- A veteran from Lackawanna County thought a memorial to those who served in his community needed something special for the holidays, but his effort has had unintended consequences. No matter the weather, John Youshock of Elmhurst makes sure to check on the Elmhurst Roaring Brook Veterans Memorial down the road from his house every few days. Last week, he thought the spot along Blue Shutters Road needed some holiday decoration, so he cut down a tree, added some battery-operated lights, and then turned to the internet for help trimming.
