Wreaths Across America
Wreaths Across America took place at 11:00 a.m. December 17, 2016 at Mount Hope Cemetery to correspond with the Arlington National Cemetery. Wreaths were laid in the Mount Hope Cemetery to remember fallen heroes and honor those who have served in the military. Morrell Worsester started sending wreaths 25 years ago to Arlington National Cemetery and then it was expanded to all 50 states. The Civil Air Patrol, veteran auxiliaries, and veteran service offices have been actively involved in the placement of the wreaths. Due to frigid temperature and wind the ceremony was cancelled, but the placement of wreaths took place as scheduled.
