An honors graduate of Penn College’s two-year landscape/horticulture technology major was among more than 400 volunteer landscape professionals taking part in Monday’s 20th anniversary Renewal & Remembrance day of service arranged by the National Association of Landscape Professionals at Arlington National Cemetery. It was the third straight year of participation for Jeremy L. Thorne, who graduated in May 2013 with degrees in the landscape technology and plant production emphases of what was then called “ornamental horticulture.” “This was my third year in a row going and I plan to go every year. It’s a great experience and a great opportunity to serve those who have served our country so that the families may find comfort when visiting their loved ones,” said Thorne, owner/president of ThorneCare Landscape Services, LLC, in Lewisburg and Sugarloaf. “The (NALP) is a special group of people who give of their time in peak season to give back. It’s an honor to work at Arlington National Cemetery each year to help beautify the sacred grounds.”
