Wreath solicitations will be collected again this weekend, Oct. 22, at Darien Doughnut from 8 to 11 a.m. and at Goodwives Stop and Shop from 9 a.m. to noon.
Wreath sponsorships at $15 per wreath go toward the placement of wreaths on veterans’ graves in Darien’s Spring Grove Veterans Cemetery at a WAA ceremony at noon Dec. 17, when the public is invited to attend.
Wreaths can be ordered online at: www.wreathsacrossamerica.org . Online orders are required to have the codes CTSGVD and CT0007 for Spring Grove Cemetery so that wreaths get to the Darien location.
