Posted by wlpo on December 11, 2013

You don’t have to know the U.S. military veterans buried at Forest Lawn Memory Gardens to place wreaths on their graves.  As the name implies, Wreaths Across America is holding simultaneous wreath laying ceremonies across the country Saturday morning.

You can watch the ceremony at the Illinois Veteran’s Home in La Salle at 11am.  From their volunteers will go to Forest Lawn Memory Gardens in La Salle to place wreaths on the graves of veterans.

Toni Lucas is the local coordinator.  She says they have about a dozen people to hang 431 wreaths and could use more help.  If you would like to help, be at the ceremony.

The effort costs thousands of dollars.
