Members of Joanie Horst’s fourth grade class at Forest Park Elementary School show a bag of sand that class members are sending to Normandy Beach in France to mark the 70th anniversary of D-Day next June. The project is being coordinated by the state Department of Education—sand from all over the state will be scattered on the graves of 419 Michigan soldiers resting at the American Cemetery in Normandy.
