SPOONER? The Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemeteries at Spooner, King, and Union Grove will participate in National Wreaths Across America Day with ceremonies to honor and remember the nation's veterans. The nationally coordinated wreath-laying ceremonies will be held simultaneously at more than 1,200 locations throughout the U.S. at 11 a.m. CST on Saturday, Dec. 16.
The ceremony at Northern Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Spooner will begin at 11 a.m., coordinated by the Civil Air Patrol. Following a brief ceremony, donated wreaths will be placed on the gravesites.
The ceremony will honor veterans of each military branch, the Merchant Marines, prisoners of war, and those missing in action. The programs will take place outdoors on the cemetery grounds.
In 2016, the Worcester Wreath Company laid more than 1.2 million wreaths at 1,228 participating locations in all 50 states and overseas.
