Wreaths Across America Honors Veterans at Forest Glade Cemetery

Wreaths Across America Honors Veterans at
Forest Glade Cemetery

Volunteers, American Legion Riders from Cambridge and DPW personnel (Dennis Fazio, John Furrier, and Rick Stinson), turned out on Saturday (12/16/17) at Wakefield's Forest Glade Cemetery to honor and lay wreaths at the graves of local residents who served in the U.S. military.  The wreaths were donated as part of the "Wreaths Across America" Program and included wreaths provided by Jeff Bradford of the Wilmington, Boy Scout Troop #56 and the wreath program.

Participants in the annual Wreaths Across America event laid a total of 152 wreaths at Forest Glade Cemetery grave sites.

"By using live wreaths, which individuals and businesses sponsor for $15 each, the nonprofit organization seeks to remember veterans' lives, not to focus on their deaths".

The DPW would like to thank and commend the volunteers, American Legion Riders from Cambridge Massachusetts and Jeff Bradford and Boy Scott troop #56 from Wilmington for their support, time and commitment.
