Mt. Pleasant Cemetery in Arlington has been named an official Wreaths Across America location this year. The cemetery will host a wreath-laying ceremony on National Wreaths Across America Day Dec. 19, joining more than 2,100 other locations across the country.
The event has been coordinated and led by local volunteers to place wreaths at the designated veteran burial lots.
In addition to the wreath laying ceremony, the town will dedicate a “Remembrance Tree” for residents to honor their own veterans. Families are encouraged to hang a personal memento on the tree to honor or to remember a veteran.
The ceremony will be conducted outside the chapel building at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery on Saturday, Dec. at 12 p.m. Attendees will be required to wear a face mask while maintaining social distancing.
Lauren Boudreau-Steeves and Iron Mountain are sponsoring the event with support from the DeVito Funeral Home
