The objective is not to decorate the graves, but to remember the lives of each individual veteran, asking participating volunteers to read the name aloud and thank them for their service each time they place a wreath, according to Karen Worcester, executive director of Wreaths Across America. Anyone wishing to volunteer to help lay the wreaths need only to show up at Memorial Cemetery at any point. The public is welcome to attend.
The Brooks-Greenwood Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution will join the national Wreaths Across America event with its own ceremony on Saturday, Dec. 16 at 12 p.m.at Forest View Cemetery, Rowley Street, Winsted.

"We will be laying 1,000 wreaths", administrative coordinator Daniele Palen said. It was a natural fit for the group's efforts, said member and Wreaths Across America event coordinator Brenda Brophy.
