Maine Wreaths Placed on Graves 

Volunteers have continued the tradition of

placing donated Christmas wreaths from Maine on headstones at

Arlington National Cemetery.

Saturday’s event marked the 16th year that Morrill Worcester and

his Worcester Wreath Co. have donated wreaths to honor the nation’s

veterans. This year, he doubled the number of wreaths – from 5,000

to 10,000 – for the Arlington project.

In addition to Arlington, Worcester has promoted wreath-laying

ceremonies at cemeteries and memorial sites in all 50 states and

Puerto Rico.
