Holiday Wreath Laying at Arlington
On Saturday, December 14, the Connecticut Society will join the Maine State Society and thousands of other volunteers for the third year in a row for a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington Cemetery to honor the men and women of Connecticut and the nation who have served in the military.
Connecticut Society volunteers will meet at 9:15 am at the main entrance to the Cemetery - look for the group with the Connecticut flag.
CT Society volunteers who want to head over as a group from the District should meet at 9:00 a.m. at the International Square Starbucks (1825 Eye Street, at the top of the escalator at the 18th Street exit of Farragut West Metro Station).

CT Society Members Lay Wreaths at Arlington
Participating in the wreath-laying ceremony continues the Connecticut Society's tradition of supporting the men and women who have served in our nation's military. In the past several years, we have participated in American Warrior's Day of Honor for World War II veterans and flown the Connecticut flag at the National Moment of Remembrance at the U.S. Capitol.
Morrill Worcester, owner of Worcester Wreath Company, Harrington, Maine, will again donate thousands of Maine balsam fir holiday wreaths to be placed on graves at Arlington National Cemetery.
During this season of giving, please join us in honoring the fallen soldiers at Arlington. If you plan to meet up with the Connecticut Society group, please RSVP online by clicking here.
