Wreaths Across America Event Held In Findlay

A lot of people came out on Saturday to participate in the Wreaths Across America event at area cemeteries.

The Findlay event was held at Maple Grove Cemetery.

During this year’s event volunteers placed wreaths at the graves of 1,500 Veterans at Maple Grove Cemetery, which is an increase of 300 from the previous two years.

300 wreaths were also placed at the graves of Veterans at nearby St. Michael Cemetery.

The mission statement of Wreaths Across America is Remember, Honor, Teach.

REMEMBER our fallen Veterans, HONOR those who serve, and TEACH your children the value of freedom.

Volunteers were shown how to correctly place the wreaths and asked to speak the Veteran’s name aloud.
