Funds sought for veterans' wreaths
Published 8:35 pm, Wednesday, December 1, 2010
A Remembering Our Veterans campaign is under way to raise funds for wreaths for Center Cemetery in New Milford.
In conjunction with the Wreaths Across America program, wreaths will be placed on veterans' graves Dec. 11 at noon.
Wreaths will cost $15 each; 410 wreaths are needed.
Heading the program is Jean Mariano, whose son, Jason D. Lewis, was a U.S. Navy Seal who died July 6, 2007, in Iraq. He is buried in Center Cemetery. Since Christmas 2007, Ms. Mariano and her organization have tried to provide a wreath for every veteran in the cemetery.
For more information, e-mail Ms. Mariano at firstname.lastname@example.org.
