Volunteers sought for wreath laying
Wednesday, December 7, 2011
Volunteers who wish to help lay wreaths for the Wreaths for Heroes event in Jefferson City at the National Cemetery on East McCarty Street are asked to arrive at the cemetery just before 9 a.m. Saturday.
At 10 a.m. Saturday, a ceremony will be held in honor of the deceased veterans. Everyone is invited to attend or participate.
Organizers suggest arriving just before 9 a.m. to see the caravan arrive from Busch’s Florist, escorted by the police and sheriff’s departments.
This is the second year for the event that has been supported by schools, businesses and community members from across central Missouri.
