Wreaths Across America
Monday, Dec 10, 2012, 4:00pm
The Wreaths Across America convoy will honor the town of Auburn with a return appearance and stopover on Monday, Dec. 10 at 4 p.m.
This group of veterans and their Gold Star Mothers, friends and supporters honored the town of Auburn last year with a stopover on their way to Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.
The group decorates every grave in Arlington with the support of many volunteers in just one day. All wreaths are donated by the Worcester Wreath Company in Maine.
The convoy travels through many towns and has decided to return to Auburn. This is a first for them, according to Corbin.
“They usually travel a different route each year stopping at towns along the way that they have not been to,” Corbin said. “The people in Auburn gave them such a warm welcome and thank you that they decided to return to us again this year.”
The ceremony/dinner are scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the Auburn/Webster Lodge of Elks. Tickets for this event are available at the lodge, and it’s open to anyone wishing to attend. Tickets are $5 for the ziti and meatballs feast.
