DARIEN, Conn. — Despite falling snow and bone-chilling temperatures, dozens of volunteers gathered at Spring Grove Veterans Cemetery in Darien on Saturday and placed wreaths at more than 1,000 graves.
The wreaths were placed as part of national Wreaths Across America Day , an annual event that pays tribute to veterans. For the event, wreath-laying ceremonies are held at hundreds of cemeteries across the country, including Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.
