Wreath-laying ceremony at Bath National Cemetery

Wreath-laying ceremony at Bath National Cemetery

Partnering with Wreaths Across America, the cemetery's official tour company will suspend their normal tours to assist the organization for this special tradition to honor and remember the active duty service members, veterans and their family members who've been laid to rest in the cemetery. "They know the value of remembering the fallen, honoring those who now serve and teaching the next generation about the sacrifices made for our freedom every day, and without their continued support, Wreaths Across America would not exist".

The community is invited to attend this event at the corner of Route 7 and Sharp Hill Road.

Saturday's Wreath Laying will occur from 8 to 11:30 a.m., with the ceremony set from noon until 12:45 p.m.

Officially launching in 2005 via viral photograph, Worcester originally began placing wreaths at veterans' graves in 1992 when she and her husband used surplus wreaths from their Christmas wreath business.

Arkansas reportedly reaches deal with SMU coach Chad Morris
His connections throughout the Lone Star State could prove to be a big boost for Arkansas in recruiting. Bielema held a record of 29-34 for the Razorbacks and ended the 2017 season just 1-7 in the SEC West.

Volunteers said the 110 boxes of wreaths arrived from Maine.

The ceremony will be held at the Forest View Cemetery, Rowley Street, Winsted. Not all of the graves will get a wreath, but someday that is the goal. Wreaths will be laid at each grave in the cemetery in honor of their service and sacrifice. WAA participates in veterans' events throughout the year, and has a veteran liaison on staff to work with local veterans organizations.

"Remember, Honor, and Teach", amounts to Wreaths Across America's stated mission on its website.

Wreaths Across America is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization founded to continue and expand the annual wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, which was begun by ME businessman Morrill Worcester in 1992.
