Dozens turn out to lay wreaths to honor veterans, despite endless rain

Dozens turned out today to lay wreaths at local cemeteries despite the seemingly endless rain. Jane Moore, local coordinator for Wreaths Across America said Mount Bethel Cemetery received way more wreaths for distribution than had been expected - 3,800 to be exact. Although the main ceremony had been held as scheduled last Saturday, the wreaths were actually laid today due to their late arrival.

Volunteers - among them Columbia students and scouts from Pack 35 - worked quickly today to deliver the wreaths to Zion Hill Cemetery, Saint Peters Cemetery, and Holy Trinity Cemetery, as well as Laurel Hill, Habecker Mennonite, Ironville, Silver Spring, and even one in Reading. All were placed on Veteran's graves.
