Volunteers needed to help place wreaths for ceremony

The City of Romulus will once again participate in the annual Wreaths Across America recognition of veterans which takes place throughout the country. The ceremony this year is planned for noon on Saturday, Dec. 16 at the Romulus Memorial Cemetery.

The national event is a gathering of volunteers and patriots in local, state and national cemeteries in all 50 states - most recently at 3,702 participating locations - as part of National Wreaths Across America Day. Each year, a new theme is chosen to help volunteers and supporters focus their outreach in their communities. The national nonprofit theme for 2023 is "Serve and Succeed."

Volunteers to help place the wreaths are still needed, a VFW spokesman said.

The Dec. 16 event in Romulus will be free and open to the public.
