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. 17 at noon.
Wreaths will cost $15; 620 wreaths are needed.
Donations may be made payable to Remembering Our Veterans and mailed to Webster Bank, 53 Main St., New Milford CT 06776.
Donations may also be made online at Wreaths Across America and by picking Connecticut as the state, Center Cemetery CTCCNM/Group CTROV0001 as the cemetery, and follow the prompts.
Since Christmas 2007, Mariano and her organization have tried to provide a wreath for every veteran buried in the cemetery.
