Hood County residents can participate in a nation-wide program that provides wreaths at national cemeteries across the country. This year, wreath placement ceremonies will be held Dec. 15 at hundreds of locations. “It’s a huge endeavor but one we can accomplish with everyone’s help,” said Sharon Bryce, of the local Blue Star Mother’s group. “This project not only benefits our fallen but for every wreath sold, the local Blue Star Mother’s group will receive $5,” Bryce explained. The wreaths are $15 each and deadline for ordering is Nov. 23, 2012. For more information, contact Sharon Bryce at [email protected] or 830-832-6254.
