MET 121716 PRAYER
The start of something special: Wreaths were placed at the Veterans Memorial in Roselawn Cemetery on Saturday, which is National Wreaths Across America Day. Every December 17th, Wreaths are placed on veteran’s graves in Arlington Cemetery and over 1,000 other cemeteries across the country. Roselawn Cemetery on Terre Haute’s north side is hoping to become one of them. While this years ceremony only involved the wreaths being placed at the memorial in the Veterans section of the cemetery, next year they plan to place wreaths at every grave of the many veterans throughout Roselawn Cemetery. There will be fundraisers throughout the year in order to raise money to make sure no veteran is left without a wreath.
