Legion Will Join Wreaths

Across America Ceremony

American Legion Post 257 has volunteered to conduct the Wreaths Across America ceremony this year at the Oak Grove Cemetery in Vineyard Haven on Dec. 15.

Starting at noon, post members will lay seven ceremonial wreaths to remember those who gave their lives in service for our country.

The day will mark the 16th anniversary of the donation of wreaths to decorate the graves at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Va., and the second year of a national campaign dubbed Wreaths across America that will bring the same remembrance wreaths to over 230 national and state veterans cemeteries.
