The Civil Air Patrol Cadets will be seeking collections for Wreaths Across America at the Fourth of July parade in Laurel on Friday. The cadets will be following the Disabled Veterans in the parade and will be doing a bucket brigade to raise money.
Wreaths Across America is a national program to honor veterans who have died by placing wreaths on their graves at Christmas. The goal is to collect enough money to place wreaths on more than 2,500 graves in Mount View Cemetery and the Yellowstone National Veterans Cemetery.
For more information, call Dana Lariviere of the Civil Air Patrol, 431-4045 or Bill Kennedy at 698-5229 or visit www.wreathsacrossamerica.org.
