Funds sought for veterans' wreaths
Published 9:57 pm, Sunday, November 18, 2012
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. 15 at noon.
Wreaths will cost $15 each; 500 wreaths are needed.
Donations may be made payable to Remembering Our Veterans and mailed to Webster Bank, 19 Main St., New Milford CT 06776 by Dec. 7.
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.
