DARIEN, Conn. -- Darien High School Support Our Soldiers Club members Lucy Armstrong and Madeleine Keane joined Darien VFW Post #6933 Commander and 2016 Darien Memorial Day Grand Marshal Lenny Hunter at Goodwives Stop and Shop last weekend to collect sponsorships for Wreaths Across America.

Sponsorships will be collected from 9 a.m. to noon again at this location on Saturday, Oct. 29, and Saturday, Nov. 5. Wreath sponsorships at $15 per wreath go towards the placement of wreaths at Darien’s Spring Grove Veterans Cemetery.
