Each year, on National Wreaths Across America Day, millions of Americans — a third of whom are children — come together to remember fallen veterans, honor those who serve and their families, and teach the next generation about the value of freedom. Locally, the Freelove Baldwin Stow Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) of Milford is planning the 12th annual ceremony along with the mayor’s office, and the DAV Post 15 on Saturday, Dec. 14, at noon, at Kings Highway Cemetery, 271 Cherry St. Milford. The event is free and open to the public.
More than 100 people participated last year. Each year, a new theme is chosen by the national organization to help local volunteers and supporters focus their messaging and outreach in their communities. This year, the theme is “Everyone plays a part.”
